Read the essay here: Borepatch: The Bonfire of the Vanities.
Then go check out the essay and comments I linked to in Positive Waves.
I'm done with the philosophy for a while. About two years back I undertook a short study of litcrit, semantics, and rhetoric using books recommended by Jeff Goldstein. Time well spent, but not an education by any means.
I think it's better for me just to go out and build some big stuff. Foucalt, Gramsci, and company just piss me off, anyway.
Have a fine one.
