for godot: Issue 1

The name drop of name drops. 3,785 page PDF of something of nothing. People have cartoon shiver lines at their temples.

UPDATE: check out the comment thread on Silliman's blog; for the predictably binary reactions, but also the discussions of the notion of "name". Interesting.

Correct me if I'm wrong-- But is the Sarah Maday you're seeing actually Sarah Maclay? I can see how your eyes would get tired reading a 4000 page book.

yeah, i have to say that i'm a fan of Issue 1; or at least the idea of it, or the idea i'm projecting onto it. it makes me think of the Sokal Hoax, except not as successful since it wasn't accepted as the real thing (mostly); it was pretty apparent that something was up.
