Bits of Virilio

A few worthwhile links on Paul Virilio, literature and the internet medium. A YouTube clip (en français); a NetTime analysis (left-activist site); and an interesting result set from the reliably useful Literature-Map.

(The text accompanying the image here is: "[...] The breathtaking frantic pace at which events have been unfolding over the last quarter of a century favor the rise of a power of forgetting.
