I owe thanks to several people who commented or otherwise helped to formulate my argument, including Shannon Mattern, Ryan Bishop, Benjamin Bratton, Sean Cubitt, Seb Franklin, Jonathan Kemp, Kelly Egan, and many others. I also thank Danielle Kasprzak and her colleagues at the University of Minnesota Press.

Earlier versions of this text were presented at University of Bochum, Goldsmiths (London), Cornell University, and Slade School of Fine Art at University College London. Thanks to Winchester School of Art for granting me the time necessary to work on The Anthrobscene and its follow-up volume, A Geology of Media.
