Willard,

Shortly before the hiatus, Humanist Susan Brown posted an obituary for Stéfan
Sinclair.

As you have noted over the years humanities computing is not just projects it’s
also about the people.

In this spirit I want to bring to the attention of subscribers a transcription
of a 2007 dialogue written by Stéfan and Geoffrey Rockwell:



As Geoffrey notes in the introduction: "You see, Stéfan loved to toy with ideas
of text through the development of software toys.”

I invite people to celebrate for a moment that joie de vivre and love of toying.

to think is often to sort, to store and to shuffle: humble, embodied tasks
