City Lines Patrick Vale

Thick lines and bright colors anchor the work of this illustrator that draws cities in a confident and beautiful way. I am amazed by his work that I just discovered by accident. Hope you like them as much as I do. Word to the wise, his work is better appreciated large scale to see the level of detail achieved in each work of art.

As technology gets better, will society get worse? Tim Wu explores the problem with technological evolution: http://nyr.kr/1jk5y41

“Comfort-seeking missiles, we spend the most to minimize pain and maximize pleasure. When it comes to technologies, we mainly want to make things easy. Not to be bored. Oh, and maybe to look a bit younger.
Our will-to-comfort combined with our technological powers create a stark possibility. If we’re not careful, our technological evolution will take us toward not a singularity but a sofalarity.”
