        Subject: The Placement of Ephemera


Jan Morris interviewed in The Guardian by Tim Adams


Morris looks around her bookshelves, the thousands of books that line
this long room floor to ceiling. "People always say: 'Have you read
them all?'" she says. "No. but I have an emotional attachment to them
all. I pick an old book out and if it is interesting I read a few
pages. I put letters and photographs and cards in them to find later."


In a little thought experiment, I wonder of projects in the field of
digital humanities and whether there are "Easter eggs" tucked away
among the bits.

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