William Gibson stops blogging blog-end:
The bits and pieces that Joseph Cornell assembled in his shadow-boxes wouldnt have seemed nearly as interesting if hed simply left them arrayed on the bench of some picnic-table - and they certainly wouldnt still be there.
I crave the sweet and crazy-making difficulties that can only be imposed by the box, the Cornellian stage, the frame, of a formal narrative.
Makes sense, I need to get into the difficult stuff too! Damn.
Later: Been thinking about this and it seems to ignore one, that weblogs are a box, a FORM. Secondly they are a way of doing research.
