EIGHT YEARS OF WOOD S LOT.

Unbelievably, wood s lot is eight years old and still going as strong as ever. Back in October 2000, Mark Woods was linking a Ted Honderich article (“This new piece begins with a defence of determinism against those hopeful persons who think it has been refuted by Quantum Theory”), “A touching story from Lingua Franca’s archives: Death Of An Altruist Was The Man Who Found The Selfless Gene Too Good For This World? by James Schwartz,” “Virtual reality pioneer Jaron Lanier says computers are too dumb to take over the world, by Damien Cave,” TheWatcher Website (“Millennium Apocalypse Updates Conspiracy & End Time Prophecy: bringing you all you could ever need to know about The New World Order, The One World Religion, Masons, British Israelites, Rosicrucians, Pokemon Mind Control, The Southern Baptist Convention and other dire portents”), stuff on Owen Barfield, Pierre Trudeau, Derrida, Haruki Murikami, internet radio, love and the brain, Orwell, and much more. Today he’s celebrating Elizabeth Bishop, linking to Greenscapes, further memorializing Hayden Carruth, focusing on the “train wreck of investment vehicles” and related politico-economic phenomenal, and much more, including the usual gorgeous selection of photographs (lately often including his own, which are excellent). I know of no one on the internet with a wider range of interests or better taste, and I with my measly one post a day stand in awe of his unceasing flow of links, quotes, and images. All I can say is: keep it up!

Comments

  1. Side note on Carruth: I noticed a few days ago that the Online Books Page has listed four or five of his books as being available–mostly through Project Gutenberg.

  2. One should always double check before posting a comment, not after.
    Carruth has three books listed, two only at archive.org, and the third both on archive.org and Project Gutenberg (Voyage of the Rattletrap).

  3. Crown, A.J.P. says:

    Yes, but there’s an added thrill if you do the checking afterwards.

  4. “I know of no one on the internet with a wider range of interests or better taste, and I with my measly one post a day stand in awe of his unceasing flow of links, quotes, and images. All I can say is: keep it up!” Amen to that – and I speak as one who can’t even manage one post a day. I don’t know how he does it, I really don’t. We are so not worthy…

  5. Huzzahs to Mark W and his Woodlot! I sometimes am afraid to go on wood s lot it’s so full of stuff–takes away from my own precious time. Keep on keepin’ on, Mark!
    A fiend,
