Thursday night conversation:
My friend Greg: Wayne’s gonna become a doctor tomorrow.
Greg’s friend Veronica: A doctor of what?
Me: Philosophy.

Recent email correspondence:
Prof. Twist: I don’t know why, but “Dr. Wayne” sounds like an FM deejay from 1976.

For the record:
As a “doctor” of “philosophy,” I can confidently say that the discussion on p. 52 is a lot more interesting.

    Now you’ve gotta cut the ultimate self-hype track: a history of doctors from Galen to Dr. Dre, all supplanted by the newest comer on the scene, Dr. Wayne.

    wayneandwax is dead
    long live dr. wayne!

    [p.s. is the dissertation CC? wanna keep that textual promiscuity flowing?]

    heh. good ideas, greg! as for making the dissertation CC, i’d love to give it the larry lessig treatment sometime soon, but i’ve got some fairly substantial tweaks i’d like to make before i throw it to the riddim wolves. planning to turn it into (at least) 2 books, never mind a mix. soon come, but probably not all that soon. (tho i do plan to let some of the story seep out here over the next few months.)


I'm a techno-musicologist, internet annotator, imagined community organizer.

I left my <3 in the digital global, but I reside in Cambridge, MA, where I'm from.

I represent like that.
