I keep a list of books or articles to read. Sometimes I have kept it as a Google Mail draft, this one I transferred from there into DevonThink. It’s not structured in any way, the entries are messy, often quick copies and pastes, just enough information to be able to Google something. These are things I come across surfing, reading, which one day, I will check out. Might not read them all, but I’ll check them out. So that when I am in the library, not looking for anything in particular, I can look up this list and check out a few really interesting books. It’s worked well so far, and just having a place to dump stuff and come back to it later, makes me less overwhelmed by all the amazing interesting stuff I come across. For some reason I don’t feel stressed by the feeling that I have to read everything - it’s a resource guide, not a task list.
I don’t know how this would be useful to anyone, since it’s highly personal, chosen on the basis of what sounds interesting, now what I have already read and found useful, not annotated etc. But the marginal cost of me copying and pasting it here is extremely low, the marginal cost for you in skipping this post is also very low, and thus it only needs to be useful to one or two people within the next few years, for this to make sense. And I guess I can consider it a personal backup.
In a way, it would make a lot of sense for me keeping this in a personal wiki, viewable to the world, but I find that for tiny things like these, it takes too much time going to a wiki page, clicking edit this page, inserting it etc. GMail is always open in my browser, and DevonThink always open in my MacBook, so it’s very fast. I might find better ways of doing this in the future.

“Videodrome”\ This movie is about a guy who runs an “unauthorized” cable channel in Toronto that plays violence and porn. One night, apparently trying to “find more material,” he stumbles across some satellite transmission put out by aliens or something. Unfortunately, he doesn’t just ignore it and watch more porn. He tries to find out what it is. Oh well, I guess the movie has to be interesting somehow. 10 p.m. \$5. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.
[This work was] inspired by William Cronon’s article, “The Trouble with Wilderness; or, Getting Back to the Wrong Nature,” which argues that the concept of wilderness is a historical and cultural construct and relying on it as the basis of environmental ethics fails to imagine new, healthy, and sustainable relationships between humans and the environments they actually inhabit.

Until recently, one had to be literate in Chinese to have access to, for\ instance, the fascinating work of Dai Jinhua (Peking University, Cinema\ Studies Department) or Hui Shui-Lun and Lao Kin Chi (Lingnan Univer-\ sity, Hong Kong), who are increasingly frequent collaborators in Chinese\ publication venues. (Dai’s work in translation is forthcoming under the\ title Cinema and Des~re.)~ before the Marxist poststructuralist femi-\ Even\ nism of Dai and her colleagues, Chen You-shih’s pioneering transnational\ Chinese feminist journal N&zn./ren had initiated discussion of feminist\ humanism in the late 1980s. This is not even to mention the research pro-\ jects of feminist scholars like Liu Bohong and others within the Party appa-\ ratus itself, or independent operatives like Liang Xiaoyan, Luo Suwen, Li\ Huiying, and many others. Even in English-language publications, collab-\ orators like Huang Ping and Elizabeth Croll, Tan Shen and Christina\ Gilmartin have targeted the effects of economic reform and liberalization\ on female labor and female citizens.

Others are seeing the link between participatory culture and some of the core objectives for education. People like Renee Fountain have prepared resources that describe wiki pedagogy, or Peter Rawsthorne looking for ways to apply learner generated curriculum and content.\ http://www.firstmonday.org/issues/issue12\_3/keats/index.html
