More than twenty years after Nick Land introduced accelerationism back into pop culture, its ideas reached the mainstream media. Today The Guardian published an article by Andy Beckett about it. Very good article. Extensive too.
The missing link is Marshall McLuhan and, of course, ‘predicting the future’ is not in the vocabulary of accelerationism.
Anyway. A must read. And great illustrations by Bratislav Milenkovic. Read it at The Guardian: ‘Accelerationism: how a fringe philosophy predicted the future we live in‘.
