The perils of individualism

"If a goal of ethnomethodology is to get at how people make sense of things, how they structure relationships, how they order things, then it immediately has something in common with computing and communications. Both have only one variable: the individual. On the other hand, cultural and critical theories take collectives or assemblages, and the power relations between, as their subject matter. "

Hi Anne! Love this sentence.

Also, I'm thinking of you today because I'm citing some of your lovely insight from "Intimations of Everyday Life: Ubiquitous Computing and the City." You're my official theoretical bridge between big urban games and alternate reality gaming. Woo!

Keep writing so I can keep citing... ;)
