I like a bunch of things:
- Architecture, cities, everyday objects
- Net art
- Book arts
- The culture of programmers
- Online communities
- Information architecture
- Visual and verbal language
- Human factors
- New media
- The representation of information
Sometimes they twist up interconnected in my head and I get confused and feel weird. Sometimes I remember that consciousness arises from complexity, so if I keep reading and writing, things should make more sense.

In my Flowers art/biology class, I’m drawing and painting the Brazilian Pepper Tree. This will be my part of our illustrated guide to the campus flora.
My other three classes are literature classes:
- Shakespeare and Theory — re-reading the plays using new discourses in order to get closer to the old meanings.
- Texts in/and/of Transition: Theories of the Book — learning and talking about the form of the book. I’ve read about this before because I love it, and I made a Delicious tag for those bookmarks.
- Theorizing Adaptation: Translation and Mutation — thinking about film adaptations of literary works, among others. This class is part of the Literature and Culture of Information program in the English department, which is becoming my unofficial specialization.
