Anyone read him? I stumbled across his stuff relatively recently and haven't gotten round to any of it yet. Apparently Remainder's good and Satin Island seems as though it could be intriguing.
Clicking through corridors of trivia on his laptop he stumbles on information about the Shroud of Turin--and is struck by the degree to which our access to the truth is always mediated by a set of veils or screens, with any world built on those truths inherently unstable... U. is tasked with writing the "Great Report," an ell-encompassing document that would sum up our era. Yet at every turn, he feels himself overwhelmed by the ubiquity of data, lost in buffer zones, wandering through crowds of apparitions.
I was thinking about AAA and stuff as I wrote that, assumed it must have been an influence.He was influenced by the 90s end-of-DTP (but pre-web) counter culture stuff like the Association of Autonomous Astronauts, London Psychogeoographical Association, Stewart Home (necrocards), etc. That's where the INS came from.
Had a curry with him and a bunch of people once and he seemed OK but there was a bit of snippiness about him from the more anti-careerist keep it real types.
I've not read his stuff but probably should.
