Story
Tagline
"The future will find you out. The future, wielding unimaginable tools of transparency, will have its way with you."
Introduction
I work in communications at a large academic medical center in the Northeast. If need be, I am also trained to perform an emergency deconstruction of any kind of text or image. 
Bragging rights
I usually find a parking space. (This field used to be called "my super power," which sounds much more modest and pleasing than "bragging rights.") Also, the above à propos quotation on how the future will have its way with you is courtesy of William Gibson, 2003.

Cerro Torre ascent 1959. Nearby Monte Fitz Roy still "remains among the most technically challenging mountains on Earth for mountaineers."
Evidence argues against a 1959 ascent of Cerro Torre in Patagonia.

One of the things I miss most in NYC is the stars. The night skies above Zion National Forest are a wonder -- themselves alone worth the trip...

Alekos Hofstetter und Florian Göpfert setzen sich in ihrem 2012 begonnenen Projekt Tannhäuser Tor mit der Architektur der Moderne und ihrem Verschwinden aus unserer Umwelt und dem öffentlichen Bewusstsein auseinander. Mit diesem Verschwinden löst sich ihr einstiges utopisches Versprechen auf.

I will gladly tell him that he needs to start touring the US galleries or at least construct the buildings somewhere! btw, the b/w image is from my old-school photo collection in a shoebox. Even more old-school is the fact that I have no memory of when or where it was taken...
