Adam Fish has posted an interview with Dutch anthropologist Dorien Zandbergen on Savage Minds. The topic is "New Edge," a Californian fusion of high-tech geek and New Age spirituality. I find myself wondering to what degree it contributed to shaping the ethos of the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement. Alternatively, I wonder how much "New Edge" itself has been shaped by the fusion of radical individualism, science and fantasy formerly embodied in, for example, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science-Fiction, whose connection with Dungeons & Dragons, World of Warcraft, and similar games is evident.
