På klassresa med Google-bussen

Knyter ihop säcken “tech-arkitektur/stadsplanering” och “hackerantropologi” med de här observationerna om Google-gentrifieringen av San Francisco från London Review of Books:

Sometimes the Google Bus just seems like one face of Janus-headed capitalism; it contains the people too valuable even to use public transport or drive themselves. In the same spaces wander homeless people undeserving of private space, or the minimum comfort and security; right by the Google bus stop on Cesar Chavez Street immigrant men from Latin America stand waiting for employers in the building trade to scoop them up, or to be arrested and deported by the government. Both sides of the divide are bleak, and the middle way is hard to find.
