This issue is called "Black and White" because I somehow picked a ton of images for this issue that almost all happened to be black and white, and then a bunch of images that are pretty pink. Content-wise, it's a nice smattering of underground web, killer robot, cybercrime, and e-culture goodness. Enjoy.

Seriously. I collected most of these images over the week. I don't know how so many of them are black and white. I'm into it. Here's the pink colors!
Ever since reading the article on the rise of the stream, I've hated the idea more and more. The stream, the everflowing content that finds you the same stuff everyone else is looking at, or the things that the big publishers can make people look at. It's the tradeoff we make for ease of use. But I don't think that's necessarily a good thing.
There are so many great things hidden in plain sight across the wide and large internet. It's like an ocean; immeasurably deep and vast, but beyond the surface, almost invisible, difficult to see. But that's the way the web used to be, too. You'd go exploring, diving, spelunking, into the net and see what sort of wild websites you could find. Nowadays, it's easy to look at the same stuff that everyone else is looking at - and we all know you are what you read/watch.
Decentralization is important because it makes us broader explorers and thinkers. Effort is important because it forces us to process and grow. I'm going to try and go on more webventures.
