There are no comments on this? Will Wright even demonstrates Spore, and there are still no comments? What's wrong with you people?

Malcolm Gladwell needs to cut his hair and Will Wright needs to shit or get off the Spore pot.

Ulrich Obrist's is just a lot of aphorisms on "the future". Oh, and interview marathons centred around "architecture without meaning" which somehow involved "a protest against forgetting"-- as a way to innovate conference technique in ways similar to changes in exhibition space in the 20th century. Or something like that.

Wait, does this mean we have to wait another 5 years for Spore?
