The Word Cloud: Poetic Form and/or Marketing Tool
June 13, 2018 (Part Three)

So this entry is the last one with the word clouds and chapter summaries included. I thought I might say a few words about one last trick: quoting myself. It's been pretty hilarious. My background is academic, so when I'm quoting something, it brings with it a whole range of notions about argument and authority. And for me to quote me? From or about my work? To promote me? I feel like I've reached some irreducible nexus of intertexuality, digital marketing, and postmodern autobiography. For me, the only real response to such absurdity is laughter.
