Oh, "each vagabond utterance" is pretty poetic. The rest...

(Work in 'viaduct', 'Palomar', and 'slipstream' and there may be a Van Morrison song.)

Thank you for this. I, too, was an underage semiotician using Lacan and The Auteur Theory under Peter Wollen and the like to parse Art History and Film at Vassar in the early 90's I recently attempted to read by Senior Thesis on Jenny Holzer and it was verbally impenetrable. Now I'm a mother and writer (blogger. argh...) who attempts to
find/make meaning in everyday life through the lyrics of pop songs.

BTW, slightly off topic, but I sometimes find oddly interesting parallels between a lot of post-Derrida writing and Sir Humphrey Appleby's speeches in the BBC Yes Minister series. If only Nigel Hawthorne were still alive to recite your passage Steven!

I'm just starting a PhD in the humanities, and was endlessly entertained by this post. Thank you!

Dr Simpson's analysis indicates that the relationship between dinosaurs and mammals was actually that of a diner to his lunch.

There are other, more sensible ways to eliminate odors, the first of which is to clean up whatever's causing.

Just shows how versatile people are, and unless you put them out of their comfort zone or their usual routine, you'll never really see their full potential.

Wow, at that age you showed off your skills, you're talented

Theoretical education is very useful now a days. There are many schools and colleges believe in this concept. I am partially agree with them. I like this interesting post.

How old are you now? I am surprised that someone so young has written so many books. Congratulations, you're a role model.

I think A Theoretical Education is must the way things are mentioned here are really amazing and the way they represent is very nice.

    • I'm a father of three boys, husband of one wife, and author of eight books, and co-founder of three web sites. We spend most of the year in Marin County, California though I'm on the road a lot giving talks. (You can see the full story here.) Personal correspondence should go to sbeej68 at gmail dot com.

    My Books

    • : Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation

      Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation
      An exploration of environments that lead to breakthrough innovation, in science, technology, business, and the arts. I conceived it as the closing book in a trilogy on innovative thinking, after Ghost Map and Invention. But in a way, it completes an investigation that runs through all the books. Sold more copies in hardcover than anything else I've written.

    • : The Invention of Air

      The Invention of Air
      The story of the British radical chemist Joseph Priestley, who ended up having a Zelig-like role in the American Revolution. My version of a founding fathers book, and a reminder that most of the Enlightenment was driven by open source ideals.

    • : The Ghost Map

      The Ghost Map
      The latest: the story of a terrifying outbreak of cholera in 1854 London 1854 that ended up changing the world. An idea book wrapped around a page-turner. I like to think of it as a sequel to Emergence if Emergence had been a disease thriller. You can see a trailer for the book here.

    • : Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today's Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter

      Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today's Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter
      The title says it all. This one sparked a slightly insane international conversation about the state of pop culture -- and particularly games. There were more than a few dissenters, but the response was more positive than I had expected. And it got me on The Daily Show, which made it all worthwhile.

    • : Mind Wide Open : Your Brain and the Neuroscience of Everyday Life

      Mind Wide Open : Your Brain and the Neuroscience of Everyday Life
      My first best-seller, and the only book I've written in which I appear as a recurring character, subjecting myself to a battery of humiliating brain scans. The last chapter on Freud and the neuroscientific model of the mind is one of my personal favorites.

    • : Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software

      Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software
      The story of bottom-up intelligence, from slime mold to Slashdot. Probably the most critically well-received all my books, and the one that has influenced the most eclectic mix of fields: political campaigns, web business models, urban planning, the war on terror.

    • : Interface Culture : How New Technology Transforms the Way We Create and Communicate

      Interface Culture : How New Technology Transforms the Way We Create and Communicate
      My first. The book I wrote instead of finishing my dissertation. Still in print almost a decade later, and still relevant, I think. But I haven't read it in a while, so who knows what's in there!
