Bruce Sterling’s annual closing rant at SXSW Interactive is always unexpected, invented on the fly, a hash of trends, trepidations, and creative prognostication. In 2013, Sterling focused on “disruption” (one of the big buzz words of the tech world), arguing that disruption is merely a nicer word than death and destruction. What will he cover in 2014?

Time is the substance I am made of. Time is a river which sweeps me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger which destroys me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire which consumes me, but I am the fire.

To honor Peter Matthiessen, who passed away over the weekend, The New Yorker unlocked part of one of the author’s best pieces of travel writing. The piece, titled “The Last Wilderness,” follows Matthiessen as he travels down the Amazon River. (His last novel comes out this week, as well.)
