  4. 99% Invisible - 87 - I Heart NY (tm)

    By now, the story is well known. A man sits in the backseat of a cab, sketching on a notepad as night falls over a crumbling city. He scribbles the letter I. He draws a heart. And then an N, and then a Y. Right away he knows he’s got something. This is it, he thinks. This is the campaign.

    The man was a designer named Milton Glaser. The City was New York. The year was 1977.

    The city needed a miracle. And it kind of got one in three letters and a symbol: I ♥ NY

    The I ♥ NY campaign was so successful that it became part of the built environment. So people started doing with I ♥ NY the same thing that humans have always done when encountering something in nature: they started imitating it.

  7. Douglas Coupland & William Gibson - Key West Literary Seminar Audio Archives

    Douglas Coupland and William Gibson discuss culture, technology, and the craft of writing. Communications technologies are a global memory prosthesis, says Gibson, and aspire to an experience in which distinctions between the "virtual" and the "real" are dissolved. We are already the borg, Gibson says.
