    • Cyber-Greens
    • “Email burns oil and shits filth into your air” ~ Bruce Sterling, Viridiandesign.org
    • They're all about creating irresistible consumer demand for cool objects that will yield a global atmosphere upgrade. It's the Net vs. the 20th-century fossil order in a fight that the cybergreens are winning. Why? Because they're not about spiritual potential, human decency, small is beautiful, peace, justice or anything else unattainable. The cybergreens are about stuff people want, such as health, sex, glamour, hot products, awesome bandwidth, tech innovation and tons of money. We're gonna glam, spend and consume our way into planetary survival. ~ Bruce Sterling

    • “The ruins of the unsustainable are the 21st century’s frontier.” ~ Bruce Sterling
