Argentina: stranger than fiction.
Bruce Sterlng’s last two blog entries have done an amazing job of pointing to links about Argentina’s post-economy order. Thousands of people “roadblocking” the thoroughfares with tent cities erected in the middle of the main highways, millions living off shadow barter-economies that are circulating their own laser-printed, barcoded scrip, middle-class matrons destroying banks in rages over currency-withdrawal restrictions… It’s eerily like Bruce’s novel Distraction. Don’t forget to check out the fundraiser that the Infinite Matrix folks are holding to keep one of the best sf sites on the web afloat. [Boing Boing Blog]
