P.S. (in a totally random tangent) Did anyone get an e-card from Yoox? If so- what on earth is 'Romantic Technology'? It sounds like something Agent Provocateur would sell...
As a matter of fact yes. The only understanding I ever really had of 'rom tech' was in contrast to the dominant interpretation of Kapp as a Hegelian - Kapps Grundlinien represented in many ways the ideas of the Romantic movement of attaching nerves to cables, bones to bridges and cranes, teeth to saws, the circulation of the blood to the railway and bodily movements to kinematics (this being a daring bringing together of different romantic concepts and the real world). At the end of the 19th century Kapp conceptualised in his Grundlinien a kind of technogenetic physiognomy, which was accurate in the importance it attached to techniques, but out of date in its romantic background.
Somewhere to begin anyway and sure why not ask the wonderful folk at Yoox for their definition cos this one ain't quite related to the fashions.
By the by, if you do want to invest, I have some quite substantial inside info that i could probably share once i have my own *** covered
