Living in Northern California and writing about engineering research for living means I’m compelled to do something entrepreneurial so here it is:
The McGirk Effect, a monthly magazine written by a single author (me) covering the unusual, exciting territory of contemporary American life.
There will be juicy features, interviews, original photos, reviews, videos, art, and experiments with machine learning.
I’m calling it a glimpse of “Our Cyberpunk Now”
Coming soon: a review of Jay Robert Nash’s (1976) Hustlers & Con Artists set against contemporary crypto startup culture. Buying a bogus superfake Rolex from Wuhan and much more.
The weightier, meatier, more deeply researched writing will be available for a mere $5 a month. I’m told reading it will boost your luck and lengthen your limbs and resod your bald spots.*
Please don’t feel obliged to subscribe unless you think you’d enjoy it. I’ll be sending teasers so you can make your mind up whenever you wish.
In the meantime I’m happy you’ll be joining me on what promises to be an exciting adventure.
