New book: Remote

well, new to me: a collection of essays on creativity, technology and remoteness entitled Remote, edited by Emma Posey. The essays 'consider the new geographies that information proximity and material distance have produced'. It stems from a conference entitled Remote I held in September 2000, programmed by B10c (the creative technology agency for Wales) and hosted at the University of Wales. I haven't read it yet, but a couple of essays leap to my attention-- one entitled Cellular Flanerie: relationships between mobile networks and the built environment by Lucy Kimbell, and another called Out of Office, Out of Mind: the social role of telework for people and companies by Britt Jorgensen and James Goodman. Hopefully will have a chance to read and review soon.
