Coming Issue of DDD

The world keeps turning and things keep changing. We grow older. Societies develop, political actions alter the course of events, financial markets fluctuate and attitudes change.

The title of our next issue is "movement": It is about moving forward or backward, about moving from one place to another, about social and political movements, about changing perceptions and changing markets, about new lives and new inventions.
