Surfs Up ! : unfinished + unpublished

" The end of the book means the beginning of 'surfing' ..."
ie. rapid, irregular and multidirectional movement through
a heterogeneous body of documents or knowledge.

"My work is designed for the pragmatic purpose of trying to understand our technological environment and its psychic and social consequences. But my books constitute 'the process' rather than the 'completed product' of discovery; my purpose is to employ facts as tentative probes, as means of insight, of pattern recognition, rather than to use them in the traditional and sterile sense of classified data, categories, containers. I want to map new terrain rather than chart old landmarks .... As an investigator, I have no fixed point of view, no commitment to any theory - mine or anyone else's."
