Re: <nettime> All right, I admit it -- I went to Davos

Few would be brave enough to pick an argument with Bruce Sterling.

After all attempting to take him to task for powowing with many of those
responsible for ensuring that most of the worlds population remain in
penury and hunger (not to mention selling his soul for free Compaq WinCE
handheld, and the chance to hang out with Bono!) is about as thankless as
an English bobby trying to arrest a particularly outrageous yankee drag
queen, whilst all the time assuring the laughing bystanders that he may be
very funny but he is still wrong.
