"Rose set up her website to record her explorations of Harlesden and, through the words of the people she walks and speaks with, uses the site to allow Harlesden to speak to the world.

Guy Debord wrote Introduction to a Critique of Urban Geography in 1955, the year I was born.
I am beginning to grow up. I feel that Debord may have been going in the wrong direction. He seems to be lost and wondering, without a purpose.
He was walking alone, a flaneur... maybe he would have better off with group to guide him.
Debord says "The word psychogeography, suggested by an illiterate Kabyle as a general term for the phenomena a few of us were investigating around the summer of 1953, is not too inappropriate."
