“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

Wow Stanford

Roland Greene and Natalia Cecire invited me to be part of Arcade a while back, and it was my first experience of doodling my thoughts in public, otherwise known as blogging. I'm very grateful they asked me.

So Arcade is about to morph into something very very special. Roland wanted me to consult on this last night (paid in Zinfandel and extraordinary cheese).

This is going to be a real benefit both for public intellectuals and for non-scholars. I've not heard of anything like it.

It was Natalia's idea I think, Roland said--awesome.

Best humanities development I've heard of in a while. Everyone will benefit.
