Cover Story: Screem

Screens, monitors and multimedia platforms have all become a part of life. But are they keeping us from actually living? And has the obsession with ever-speedier connections left us disconnected? In this edition, we reflect on the pros and cons of lives lived increasingly online.

Also in this issue:

Chris Flynn talks Treasure Island with former poet laureate Sir Andrew Motion; Adam Curley catches Catcall while he can (the punk-pop singer is definitely going places); Fiona Crawford reports on all the action from Sydney’s Street Soccer Festival; and, in ‘Roving Eye’, we travel to the Brooklyn projects for a close-up perspective on the raw roots of hip-hop.

This edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ is Tony from Perth and we have ‘Streetsheet’ contributions from Lyndon in Sydney; Heba and Warren in Melbourne; and Cindy and Greg S in Adelaide.
