This blog is dormant for the time being. It is good to see that it generated some interest and continues to get a steady trickle of views. Most people visiting will be interested in the seven posts at the top of the page with the title What is Social Acceleration. In those posts I develop the idea of social acceleration, drawing on the ideas of James Gleick, Hartmut Rosa and David Harvey among others. My current interests focus more on the city and I am researching the area of city branding as well as experimenting with writing about the city from the perspective of social semiotics. Some writing relating to these interests can be found on my blog, Social Semiotics and the City.
