I hadn’t realised that William Mitchell was Australian until I started watching this video of a talk he gave about his recent book, Me + +, archived in an impressive collection of talks given at MIT. There’s also a talk by Maurice Sendak, who still has me spellbound by Where the Wild Things Are, there’s a reading by Seamus Heaney, a talk by Noam Chomsky about the New War Against Terror, along with a lot of other talks on 9-11, war and terrorism, and about 150 other videoed talks all beautifully collected at MIT World. You can download the videos and watch them later, too, if you want. I like that.

They find that the Chinese machine vision imaginary is global, blue and competitive.  […]
