In 2001 a friend shared a link to this paper, ‘Folk Computing: Revisiting Oral Tradition as a Scaffold for Co-Present Communities’. There’s one part of it that really struck me then and I’ve thought about many times since (and it’s more interesting than the academic title sounds).
John Goldin got in touch as he’s put together a page that quickly searches the diary and shows charts of the frequency of words throughout the text.
Apologies for the lack of updates recently. It’s a combination of being too busy but also running out of thoughts to post… expect the pace to be slower than it was.
My first thought after reaching the end was how much it reminded me of 'London Spy'. Lots of great performances and so much to love about it… but a ludicrous, messy ending that couldn't live up to the expectations created by the increasing convolutedness of the conspiracy.
