After last night’s dinner with Bruce Sterling, we were joined by Chuck Olsen, the man behind the film Blogumentary and the videoblog Minnesota Stories. Hear Sterling’s thoughts on everything from the pot roast at Minneapolis’ Modern Cafe to what happens to the atomized rubber created when our shoes wear down to his notion of “spimes” (objects that are trackable over space and time using RFID chips). Watch it here, then join us for Sterling’s free discussion with Rirkrit Tiravanija at the Walker tonight.

Thanks to Bruce and Boingboing‘s Xeni Jardin for guest-blogging at Off Center over the past few weeks.
