It catches on, this nomad thing. Train cars start looking more like capsule hotels, capsule hotels start looking more like palaces. iPods replace home theatres. People start using their library cards. Radio enjoys a brief resurgence before people discover TV on their mobile phones. Cityscapes get redesigned; less roads, more shunting-yards. Companies start noticing and replace office space with wireless internet and Skype headsets. Conferences take place on deserted platforms. The line between suits and sleepwear blurs. Empty skyscrapers reverberate above the unceasing river of steel. The whole city rolls now; a metropolis on wheels – none of it going anywhere at all.
