Intervention – “Future Shock” by Andy Merrifield |
For the urban is itself a political object, a very special virtual political object; so is the “right to the city.” Urban rights are ones that need inventing, need inventingoffensively; they aren’t established safeguards already there, ones you can invoke defensively, a Bill of Rights to which you can appeal in times of danger. Rights aren’t passive: they become your right by working through danger, by orchestrating effective political action. You make rights your right. Hence the reason why so many people misunderstand what’s meant by right to the city, where the future necessarily stalks the present; horizons open up for the virtual to be glimpsed, for rights to actualize themselves through politics.

Some tweaks towards running cucumber features individually in texmate
Some tweaks towards running cucumber features individually in texmate (if using GetBundles, you can add the Cucumber bundle to Textmate..) and then you'll want to edit mate ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Pristine\ Copy/Bundles/Cucumber.tmbundle/Support/lib/cucumber/mate/runner.rb so that line 28 reads puts `./script/cucumber #{argv.join(' ')}` #puts `./script/cucumber.rake #{argv.join(' ')}` And that should be all you'd need to be able to run cmd+R for individual feature files

Ruby Version Manager: Easily Use Multiple Ruby Versions At Once
Textmate and RVM: The fix to make it all "just work":

Line 125 becomes: exec("bash -lc '" + cmd.compact.join(" ") + "'")

Add a line before line 37 with: ENV['TM_RUBY'] = nil if ENV['TM_RUBY'] == '/usr/bin/ruby'

The latter line is to override a bizarre TextMate default that people were complaining about way back in 2006... :P
