Spectacle, Surveillance, Value and Christopher Robin

Blue Stockings, Sunday, September 15th @ 7PM

I’ll be interviewing McKenzie Wark (author of the Hacker Manifesto) about his book The Spectacle of Disintegration, the economist Andrew Kliman about Capitalism and tendency for social movements to disappear, and Margaret Kimberley from the Black Agenda Report about the Spectacle and the Surveillance state. I’ll also explain why I wrote a novel about the real Christopher Robin’s (who inspired the Pooh stories) entirely fictional involvement with May 1968.

That’s at:
