My tension about DH in two tweets
I think I just sent out two tweets that sum up -- in very compressed form -- my longstanding tension about how I approach DH, and some of the . . . umm . . . recent conversations within (maybe) DH.
No idea yet what, if anything, I can get out of those. But I'll be thinking on them.
"Any medium powerful enough to extend man's reach is powerful enough to topple his world. To get the medium's magic to work for one's aims rather than against them is to attain literacy."
