With apologies to Walter Benjamin

Already today, as the contemporary mode of knowledge-production demonstrates, the book is an obsolete mediation between two different hypertext systems. For everything essential is found on the del.icio.us page of the researcher who writes it, and the reader who studies it assimilates it into his or her own blog.

    I know what you mean. I assimiliated ‘Everything is Miscellaneous’ long before I got around to actually reading it.

    Have I shown you my essay on hypertext poetry and Wallace Stevens’ Idea of Order at Key West? I want to do my thesis on art (specifically literature) in the age of digital reproduction, and it was sort of a stepping stone towards that.
