Critical Approaches to Culture + Communications

A Weblog by Ron Burnett (Founded in 1994 and now celebrating 23 Years!!)

This site began as one of the first academic sites in Canada when the World Wide Web was in its early phase of development. I have maintained it through many iterations since 1994.

Doug Coupland wrote a lovely book about Vancouver, City of Glass that delves more deeply into the ethos of this city than most other books. I took this picture in downtown Vancouver three weeks ago and it provides an interesting visualization of Coupland's metaphor.
