: Kurt Anderson, host of my favorite radio show, Studio 360, talks to The New Yorker’s Paul Goldberger and comments on the World Trade Center designs this morning. (read here; listen here). Says Goldberger:
What we really need for that site is the Eiffel tower of 21st century. Something that would use the technology of our time with the brilliance that Eiffel used the technology of the19th century to create beautiful object like that. And considering how much we do in New York need a new broadcast tower. To not do it at Ground Zero, and not use it as occasion for a very tall tower is a little crazy.
: Which reminds me, I’m adding Anderson to my list of People Who Should Have Blogs. Clay Shirky leads that list. Steven Johnson used to be on it, too.
