“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Realist Magic Liveblog 4

67 000 words. Ah, people have gone out shopping, and I can put on Wolves in the Throne Room's new album with impunity and get back to working on this edit of Realist Magic. The first note already has me enthralled.

I have open my blog, as I wrote a lot of posts on the project that I'd like to incorporate somehow. And my database. Who else uses a database to take notes? Not Excel for heaven's sake, I use Filemaker Pro, and the database is now about 25mb in size, having been writing notes in it since 1995. It's very handy. This is good advice actually, for a Ph.D: stop using word files and that crappy search function between files. Bundle everything into Filmaker. You can now embed Word files, images, web pages directly into it.
