'Reporting the universe'
'I report and observe what I see going on. What I experience and what I see others experiencing. It’s a strange place, it’s a wonderful place, it’s a normal place, it’s a terrible place, and it’s not a place. It’s a state.
I’m ‘reporting the universe’ You can do it, too. I mean, someone has to do it.
“The writer…believes all that can be thought can be written…. In their eyes a human being is the faculty of reporting, and the universe is the possibility of being reported.”
-Emerson, cited in Doctorow, Reporting the Universe (Harvard, 2003, p. 1, edited)'

"LoS ESTADOS UnIDOS de memetica"
"Talk about memetica is a rhetorical historiography of the present – a historiography that is contemporaneous, a form of journalism or field research reporting.
We have investigative reporting on the ground but also in the sky – helicoptering over the scene, except that the view from the sky goes much further than that – to a space station or satellite. And the view goes the other way too: we’re on a fantastic voyage through our veins, digging into atoms, etc.
But this historiography is rhetorical. It’s both descriptive and constructive. It instructs and informs. It also seeks to stimulate and provoke. I’m ultimately seeking here to get you to see things partly how I see them, if only for the time you’re reading this.
These are notes and observations from memetica – los estados unidos de memetica."
