“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

Bogost Denies Surge in Hits

Well, this blog got 40 000 hits yesterday. And the day before 20 000. I blamed my post about Ian Bogost coming to Rice. But Ian assures me it can't be that.

It's an interesting correlation though. Occasionally in the last year I've had about 8 000 hits once or twice. A little while before I would sometimes get 3000. But 40 000 is an order of magnitude higher. It's like some kind of domino cascade or hundredth monkey effect. Or maybe Ian's talk made the software go crazy with pleasure :)

My evil plan is working! Funny how all of the hits came from an abandoned oil rig in the North Sea from whence I am planning to launch my secret army to take over the London seahorse racing gambling syndicate.

I for one tweeted a link to your brilliant "fuck faces" post 8/25.
I'll entertain the notion a domino started there.

I checked in 39,000 times, so it could be that too.
