        Subject: Re: [Humanist] 33.169: yellow stickies?

Not to forget all those instruments of torture-pleasure in the queery backrooms
of electronically enhanced intellectuaism: I beware in the souterrain of our
house an IMSAI (CP/M on Intel 8086) filling the half of a desk, a portable
KAYPRO II, two ATARI (one with external hard-drive), a full-equiped NEXT-Station
and some wracked MS-PCs. Probably the messy collection says something about my
mind but I hope that this doesn't infect my postings ;-)

I have had fun imagining what objects surround digital humanists in their
work spaces after reading Sara Ahmed quote, in Queer Phenomenology, Diana
Fuss

[quote]
the theatre of composition is not an empty space but a place animated by
artifacts, momentos, machines, books, and furniture that frame any
intellectual labour. (2004, The Sense of an Interior: Four Writers and the
Rooms that Shaped Them)
