Hi and thanks, reading and writing on the run -

Because we're on the road & traveling light (Providence RI to Atlanta Ga 
to Victoria BC and back), the books I'm reading (or trying to read) have 
had to have a real resonance -

Red Pine's translation of The Heart Sutra
Sibley's West Birds of course
The Blue Annals, George Roerich trans., 2 volumes (classical Tibetan
Recursiveness, Eilenberg and Elgot (category theory applied to recursion, 
incredibly difficult for me)
Synthetic Philosophy of Contemporary Mathematics, Fernando Zalamea
The Portable Hakluyt's Voyages
International Radio Operator's Handbook, 1924
and trying to get something out of three volumes in the Demystified series 
- Quantum Mechanics Demystified, String Theory Demystified, Quantum Field 
Theory demystified
Just finished an amazing book, Lydia Zinovieva-Annibal, The Tragic 
Menagerie, which I highly recommend!

We have a couple of thousand books, keep trading them in for others 
because of lack of space. Several core subjects for me - Buddhist 
philosophy (classical, Tibetan, Nagarjuna, etc.), cosmology and physics, 
non-western language grammars, mathematics, digital music production, 
guqin and shakuhachi texts, philosophy of media, deconstruction, early 

On the road I tend to stare at pages a lot -

Humanities Summer Institute, on gamespace/edgespace/blankspace; now two 
more short presentations for the Electronic Literature Organization 
Conference connected to DHSI as well)
