Bruce Sterling's SXSW Interactive 2015 Closing Remarks

I didn’t make it to SXSW this year, but I would never miss Bruce Sterling’s time-honored closing remarks from the Interactive festival because Bruce Sterling is paying attention. This year’s riff is the Internet of Things and the future of maker culture. Along the way, Bruce talks about urban masses fearfully watching the sky, the continuing Balkanization of the Internet, and the “block being the new like.”
