John Green is inspired by airport TVs to muse about attention, engagement, and Fahrenheit 451. (Which, by the way, is a great book. Seriously. Even if you already pretended to read it for class, read it again for real. Totes worth it.) Bonus points for the phrase: "shouty walls" which I will now be using to describe all large, ambient multimedia displays.
I was reminded (by the literary airport part) of this slightly less accessible Onion video on the (fictional) Kafka Airport in (nonfictional) Prague.Posted by cecilia at September 21, 2012 11:12 AM
