#pynchonwiki   New annotation to #bleedingedge   for #page13  as a part of the #almosthistory  project! #90029

The Sony VX2000 was highly popular among my wealthier friends growing up for skate videos among other shenanigans.  Notable for fisheye lens feature, as a vital part of 90s 00s videos from skateboarding subjects to hip hop videos.

Stewart Brand and his writings are certainly in line with the mission of #almosthistory  where we are seeking to promote the active, free and open archiving of the digital banal, which nonetheless is a requirement in the organic reconstruction of our life and times.
 
New entry on #pynchonwiki  for #almosthistory  #90029 -- who else recalls drab encounters in the craft beer bar underneath the terminal? Or th deserted street of fusion food trucks found since 2011?

#pynchonwiki   #bleedingedge   #page43  Do you remember when 56K modem speed was enviable? Perhaps at your friend's house after school when you were burning CDs... or in a deserted dotcom bust office? (Unfortunately I am not responsible for the wonderful annotation I share on this page re: the #Tetris  folk tune and various sources. Really fascinating!) #almosthistory  #90029

#Page5  
"Maxine returns an anxious call from a whistle-blower at a snack-food company over in Jersey which has been secretly negotiating with ex-employees of Krispy Kreme for the illegal purchase of to-secret temperature and humidity setting on the donut purveyor's "proof box," along with equally classified phototed of the donut extruder, which however now seem to be Polaroids of auto parts taken years ago in Queens, Photoshopped and whimsically at that."

Classic elements of Pynchon - paranoia, corporate espionage, classified recipes, prescient placement of scandal, and word play on breakfast and auto "donuts", along with pitting Jersey and Queens identities against one another, before finishing with a quaint throwback to the days and times when Photoshop was a more primitive tool. 

Krispy Kreme is set to go public on NASDAQ only days from Maxine's entry into this episode of corporate espionage, ironically centering around a company whose intellectual property (the recipes!) were bought and not developed.
