someone told me that when street lights became prominent, this meant that women had more freedom. it never occurred to me, but i can see how it would be true.

so i have to remember how the changes in a city have changed peoples lives. i wonder what new changes have changed peoples lives? i do know that i love electricity, and maybe i should have written a homage to electricity. but yes, it's interesting to think about, how the city changes and influences your life.

In 21C, a fine magazine of modern thought now no longer being published, I once read an article describing technology as having a positive and negative aspect.

Electricity, the author claimed, killed the night.

The magazine was full of social/philosophical/artsy-fartsy/intellignesia shit like that.

I'll dig them out & flick thru to see if there's anything of interest.
