Dave, you’re far too hard on yourself! I think the question you asked about books is one that many (including myself) responded to emotionally, as books are such an intrinsic part of our culture, our learning, and our identities, especially for those of us with an academic bent. But you did also make us trouble the notion of the rigidity of the book and who it privileges, and to explore the differences between the linearity of books and the randomness of rhizomes. I’m still thinking about it, and likely will write more on it once you stop wasting our time with all these other interesting things to think about!
