It’s been a big year of transition for long-time friend of UnBeige, Rob Walker. Earlier this spring, after six years in the post, he filed his final “Consumed” column for the New York Times magazine, just before that publication went through its own major period of transition. Now he’s announced that he’s shifting his online home from the long-held go-to source for all things Rob Walker related, the always terrific Murketing, to the warm and friendly confines of the Design Observer empire. From there, he’ll be writing like before, about all sorts of cultural, technological and other smart things to think about that you may have noticed subconsciously, but it took his insight and way with a pen to bring to light. First topic up on the new site: “Dedigitization,” or how “things from the digital world crossing over into physical manifestations.” We wish Rob the best of luck in his new home, as well as everyone at D.O. for their latest addition.
