=== A Course of Probes ===
v McLuhan


=== Two Kinds of Readings ===
- one set addressing the cultural history of writing and printing to the present. Including scholarly practices and apparatus: bookwheels, commonplace books, note taking, journaling, and digital work with Annotate, TBX, and others. Videos where applicable.

- another set of contemporary published works that address the practices digital wreading. eg [[ this from J. R. Carpenter]]

..."and by islands I mean paragraphs" casts a reader a drift in a sea of white space extending far beyond the horizon of the browser window, to the north, south, east and west. Navigating (with mouse, track pad, or arrow keys) reveals that this sea is dotted with islands ...and by islands I mean paragraphs. These paragraphs are computer-generated. Their fluid compositions draw upon variable strings containing fragments of text harvested from a larger literary corpus. Individually, each of these textual islands is a topic - from the Greek topos, meaning place. Collectively they constitute a topographical map of a sustained practice of reading and re-reading and writing and re-writing islands. In this constantly shifting sea of variable texts one never finds the same islands twice... and by islands, I do mean paragraphs.

This set might include //Composition#1//, //S//, maps, other constructions for reading and writing.
