Bruce identified a way point on the pathway that will convert most of us into "informal" citizens doing informal work and living in informal spaces:
In the western Balkans, the collapse of the socialist economic system in Yugoslavia and Albania has given rise to extensive informal building activity that represents a new form of urbanisation. The question is: how far do such urban transformations indicate patterns of future development for European cities in general?
This is hilarious re: the wealthy (jumping from lily pad to lily pad of security/services):
Bruces: "I think maybe we should scrap all the old, regulated buildings and just have rich, highly-mediated jet-set gypsies scampering around with laptops brimming with electronic cash."
