“We carved our own characters in stone and wood because the geography around us was already covered with it’s own script. We extended our memory into paper and silicon because there was already memory embedded in the natural landscape.”—cloudhead (via instantplasticmaybe)
The trails of our boots in the snow are crisscrossed with animal tracks. This is the original alphabet the roots of our writing written into the landscape.

“You may be a geek. You may have geek written all over you. You should aim to be the geek they will never forget. Don’t aim to be civilized. Don’t hope that straight people will keep you on as some sort of pet. To hell with them, they put you here. You should realize what society has made of you and take full revenge. Get weird. Get way weird. Get dangerously weird. Get sophisticatedly thoroughly weird and don’t do it half way, put every ounce of your horse power into it. Have the artistic courage to realize your significance in culture.”—Bruce Sterling
