Belatedly sharing how much I loved DevArt and in fact the whole Digital Revolution exhibition at Barbican in London - it's on until 14th September 2014, get there if you can.

"The computer will touch men everywhere and in every way, almost on a minute-to-minute basis. Every man will communicate through a computer, whatever he does. It will change and reshape his life, modify his career and force him to accept a life of continuous change."

~ From 'Records, Computers and the Rights of Citizens' (1966) by Willis Ware, Electrical Engineer, b. August 31st, 1920, d. November 22, 2013.

In memory of the late, great Doris Lessing who died this weekend at the age of 94, +The Guardian 's podcast on +SoundCloud.

Or just buy a copy of her autobiographies, which are brilliant books in their own right.

She is my favourite author by a country mile: experimental, irascible, mildly mad, fundamentally kind. If you've stopped reading anything longer than a tweet recently, anything she's written is reason enough to pick up a book again. 

She also said one of the most energising things you will ever read:

"Whatever you're meant to do, do it now. The conditions are always impossible."

RIP Doris Lessing.

"Irony is a knowing humour found in the gap between what a sign means and its intention, a caricature that illuminates truth, punctures pomposity and satirises power" - like this definition from Katie Glass in The Sunday Times*

*full article sadly behind a paywall.. wouldn't it be smart if a micro payment meant you could share an article? (One I've paid to read in the first place?)
