It’s encouraging to find proof that it’s possible to make different worlds (ok, disciplines) converge. I discovered C.W. Anderson’s work through the NiemanLab, and those who know me know how I am constantly nagging about the connections between journalism, print culture and the study of digital culture, so this article sums up many of my own interests.

Clairey Ross and I co-wrote a remixed version of the posts we had written originally for each of our blogs, and this is what came out. It was quick and fun and online! :) Thank you, Clairey, and thank you, UCLDH.

The genealogy of the project is reproduced in detail on its pages: blogging, email exchanges, comments on posts, etc. As a result this is as honest as poetry can get: there is no make up here, at least no extra make up: imagine a poetry anthology with behind the camera...

Here’s a kindred soul: I calculated the scale of the problem. Those prolific genius artists were just the start of it – I had 6ft of Fall CDs, 5ft 8in of Miles Davis, 5ft 6in of Sonic Youth and its solo spin-offs, 5ft 2in of John Coltrane, 4ft 11in of the free improviser Derek Bailey, 4ft 4in of Robert Pollard and Guided by Voices, 3ft of Bob Dylan, 2ft 8in of the Byrds and various...
