A Paradox

The EMDA folks spent yesterday afternoon enthralled by Mark Davies’ corpora and his interface for them. Rather than casually noodling around, as I like to say, many of us were in a mad dash to engage with one corpus in particular. Dashing because while Davies had built the thing, most of us had a very… More A Paradox

Thinking with tools

Today’s list of tools to think with: Stephen Baker’s “with-animal” performance; imaginative philosophy; quantum physics and wormholes for literature; and Google Earth custom maps. Steep is one way to describe my favorite learning curves. For those who may be more concerned with the “monster” storm – a reinforced shovel, a hairdryer for the frozen locks,… More Thinking with tools
