What’s that with the Balkans? Bruce Sterling not only now lives in Belgrade, but tells us in his recent Washington Post article
My dot-green future is finally arriving about himself “standing among a crowd of radical Serbs in front of the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade last week,” when it dawned on him, that things are perfectly going his way as a futurist: “It’s 2007, and the old world has backfired so comprehensively that a new era is truly at hand. I actually knew this would happen. I guess, for a prophet, this is what victory feels like!” And John Romero states that Sarajevo just got a notch cooler since art student Damiano Colacito from the Italian game art scene “took the DoomGuy’s face and projected it onto a war-torn hotel in Sarajevo as part of an international art festival,” the XXIII International Festival of Sarajevo—the project[ion] is called Face of Doom.
