Christopher G. Moore Updates: 25 July 2014

Dear Reader,

As technology pushes into all areas of our life, I wondered if it had improved the traditional handcuffs that police and soldiers use. The handcuffs (the kind we visualize when we see that word) are largely based on 19th century technology.

Plastic handcuffs have come into the law enforcement arsenal but that is hardly an example of hi-tech. A pair of handcuffs that act as a Taser or with the press of a remote or a computerized program to limit the area a prisoner can move, injects a sedative into the weareróthatís hi-tech, and this is what the future has in store.

This week my essay is about a new set of hi-tech handcuffs. This application of technology opens up political questions of how far society is prepared to go in the quest of controlling others.

Calvino enters a world of ancient maps, political graffiti, student protestors and murder. The finger points at Calvino as the killer. He searches for allies who will help him prove his innocence.

In the follow up to The Cultural Detective, Faking It in Bangkok, and Fear and Loathing in Bangkok, Moore pays caring and critical homage to his residence of choice by diagnosing some of Thailand’s discontents and offering subtle remedies for readers to tease out.

The essays range from political conflict to violence and criminal investigations in the digital age, to cultural upheavals, cognitive science and writing, including essays about Orwell, Kafka, and Henry Miller. More>>
