This past Thursday I was at a book launch for William Gibson’s Agency, he uses the term “Jackpot” for the slow(ish) apocalypse surrounding us. In the articles below, Jain cites Haraway citing Stanley Robinson who’s using “The Dithering” to replace Anthropocene, Venkatesh Rao talks about the “Great Weirding”, and for a while I was using “The Churn” (quoted from The Expanse) in this newsletter. Nothing to add, just noting the varied ways in which people are trying to name our times, since I bumped into all of them over three days.
