There's a stack of book on my desk, waiting to be read:
Gaston Bachelard (1958) The Poetics of Space, 1994 edition, Boston, Beacon Press.
Crang, Mike and Nigel Thrift, ed. (2000): Thinking Space, London and New York, Routledge.
Weinberger, David (2002): Small Pieces Loosely Joined, a unified theory of the web, Perseus Publishing.
Reading them will satisfy several purposes. One: a touch up on the concept of space for an article I am supposed to submit sometime soon. Two: Thinking about intimacy/publicity and digital spaces. Three: Prove to myself that I can still read a fairly complex book.
Until then.... I have papers to grade.
