What is going on in Tuscaloosa?! On the heels of Hank’s fine citations of The Phenomenology of Perception comes this dizzy(ing) multi-tasker from David Saffo. It’s a miracle, man. So many questions: all dead, or only mostly dead? which way is up? who’s the guest speaker? “for” whom? is it possible to make only a small section of my screen rotate 360 degrees? what constitutes “a good hour”? Alas, we may never know the answers to any of these questions, but clearly the (physical) notepad is the medium of the future in Alabama, and boys, we salute you. (JM)
