November 5, 2014 / #Accelerate round-up
There has been a lot of #Accelerate-related action recently - here's a brief round-up:
- Bayern Radio recently broadcast a fantastic show on accelerationism, With Techno and Terminator against Capital, complete with music picked by editor Robin Mackay, including some CCRU productions.
- Alex Williams and Nick Srnicek, authors of the Accelerationist Manifesto, are Interviewed in Libération.
- The Dark Ecologies blog continues its excellent series of readings of #Accelerate with a post on Benedict Singleton's take on Cosmism.
- CCBLAB have an Interview with Editor Robin Mackay.
- A call for papers for a Prague workshop on education and acceleration.
- Lastly, and most intriguing of all, Vice have a story on Health Goth, a fashion movement which is apparently aligned with Accelerationism.

October 21, 2014 / Ce qui te manipule passera-t-il au niveau 2?
Après le récent entretien avec Alex Williams et Nick Srnicek dans Libération, les accélérationistes français (fraccélérationistes?) peuvent se réjouir ... nous avons ici un certain nombre d'exemplaires de cette élégant brochure à tirage limitée Fission, produite par Forde et Wallriss avec la collaboration d'Urbanomic. Elle contient le texte essentiel de Nick Land, Fission (Meltdown) ainsi qu'un essai de Robin Mackay, 'Une expérience dans l'inhumanisme' sur l'histoire de Land et son travail à Warwick dans les années 90.
