Fire Destroys Harbin

Please visit Harbin's web site for further information and to help:
http://harbin.org

Harbin lives on virtually in the book I plan to publish soon (I'm indexing it now), and I hope too now that I may be able to add many, many photographs as an anthropological record of "before the fire". And after my first Harbin book is published - http://www.scottmacleod.com/ActualVirtualHarbinBook.html - I'm glad that, since I imagine actual Harbin will be rebuilt soon and become very differently beautiful again, "The Making of Virtual Harbin as Ethnographic Field Site" (in Google Earth?) will potentially dovetail beautifully and NEWLY with "The Re-Making/Re-Building of Actual Harbin" - for far-reaching parallel closures and re-openings.

Dear Readers:

After you check in at the Gate at Harbin, one resident who has worked there for years often says, "Go Play," 

This ethnography of Harbin Hot Springs, a kind of Hippies-to-the-Hot-Springs' Eden project in northern California, explicitly and theoretically brings together approaches to the comparative study of both the actual and virtual, by developing a new methodology in studying Harbin - as a kind of hippy or alternative haven from modernity.

Through this anthropological book and conceiving of virtual Harbin, you can begin not only to "Be There" - to visit Harbin virtually in the text, as it were - but also to revisit the 1960s and its related freedom-seeking movements.

Moreover, Harbin Hot Springs' clothing-optionality, spirituality and alternative culture are attractive in mysterious ways.

In the way that Margaret Mead's work was theoretical and gained widespread attention at the same time, this book will appeal due to the broad interest in emerging interactive virtual worlds, as well as due to 1960's informed alternative Harbin's exotic, yet familiar attractiveness, now mediated digitally.

As information technologies and wondrous developments like virtual worlds continue to develop rapidly, I hope to engage you, the Reader, further in the conversation about the creativity in countercultural thinking, in virtual worlds, in comparative ethnography, and in the experiences of interacting in this virtual Harbin, even as visitors to actual Harbin enjoy visiting this Hot Springs' retreat center.

Namaste & thank you, Scott

For Librarians and Booksellers:

 The book's target audiences are undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, information technology social scientists, academics interested in the "virtual," and people with a fondness for the 1960s. and alternative culture .

My book comes into conversation with Tom Boellstorff's "Coming of Age in Second Life: An Anthropologist Explores the Virtually Human" (Princeton 2008), and could be read in academic courses in direct conversation with "Coming of Age in SL."

For my next Harbin book, I plan to build a virtual Harbin, ideally in a movie-realistic interactive 3D virtual earth, Google-made, and do actual virtual comparative fieldwork, what I'm calling ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy - as an innovative methodology in Anthropology.

I'd like for readers to be able to visit virtual Harbin and have a Harbin experience, in their bathtubs, for example, for the meditative releasing action of the warm waters, - and write ethnographically about this.

I just posted this note to the FB Harbin Hot Springs group I started … https://www.facebook.com/groups/5609024455/
I'd like to let Harbin friends know about my upcoming Harbin book - www.scottmacleod.com/ActualVirtualHarbinBook.html - with this Harbin Hot Springs :) group which I hope also will document some of Harbin pre-fire. Am looking for many photos I can publish now, after the fire, and will explore donating some of the royalties from this book to a Harbin residents' fund.
