Pilcrow + Le Cool present Spiel #1
The Bottom Half of the Internet/The Unreal Engine
Racism; typos; filth; spam; ignorance; rage – that’s all the bottom half of the internet is good for, right? Rob Manuel (co-founder B3ta) wants you to question the internet dictum, most beloved of high-profile newspaper columnists, that you should ignore all of the comments all of the time. The ‘war on comments’, he reckons, might just be an echo of a fourth estate that’s having trouble adjusting to the idea of an unwashed public disagreeing with their sacred opinions. Sous les pavés, la plage.
Bitcoin (currently trading at
$236.52 $0.09 $120.1) is big enough to feature in The Economist & The Metro alike - but what of the other economies and currencies birthed by the internet? Ed Melvin (Publicis) explores digital money and how it leaks into the real world, whatever that is.
