Re: [-empyre-] reticence

hi Jim

as always I read your posts with interest.

> What was that project, geniwate?

My GPS project entailed data from the Gammon Ranges in northern south
Australia, which I used to explore issues of landscape among other things.

Well, papers and artworks - I'm being very old-fashioned, but the fact is, I
can't properly get my head around the ephemerality of email; it makes me not
want to put the sort of effort into writing about complex ideas in a post;.
. .email just doesn't seem like a place where I want to do hard work,
especially when I have so many other things I have to write.

Given that empyre is a list with certain presumptions that there will be a
low noise ratio (which I wouldn't have any other way; I have a very short
fuse with half-baked posts these days), I cannot personally find the time to
put into researching minor articles to post to the list (unless I could
combine that research and writing with some other purpose, I guess)

(Perhaps some empyreans think that I should not be on empyre?; this textual
gift economy that i'm not complying to. . .)

that said, Jim, your forthcoming topic may get a spark outta me,
particularly since I spend all my days programming multiple levels of
textuality - what I think we need is a new linguistics, to go with a
phenomenological analysis; a linguistics that copes with the network and
multiple, interconnected textualities; that can provide us with some
structural tools without fading into a mixture of mathematics, physics and
mysticism . . . 

anyway, that's what I think about when i'm not killing monsters in Diablo II
