[Commonplace books: Thomas Farnaby, 17th-century]
"The promise of the Internet-as-Alexandria is more than the rolling plenitude of information. It’s the ability of individuals to choreograph that information in idiosyncratic ways, the hope that individuals might feel invited by the gravitational pull of a broad and open commons to ‘rip, mix, and burn’ — to curate."
[curate, digital: Gideon Lewis-Kraus, “A World in Three Aisles: Browsing the Post-Digital Library” Harpers 314: no. 1884 (May 2007): 56.]
