Meteorology Captures the Technosphere

Rain radars help us plan our everyday life and foresee natural disasters. In a world were the line between the technosphere and the biosphere becomes blurrier everyday, not even our meteorology instruments can tell the difference, like a local technician spotted in New Zealand's official weather forecasts site. Apparently there is a WiFi network illegally configured that interferes with the rain radar creating a ray of "clouds" that won't bring any water, but it surely became our peculiar image of the week.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
