What Is The Ecstasy of Influence?

“All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language; and every chapter must be so translated…” John Donne

This blog is an attempt to highlight stuff about brands, culture, technology, media, writing, design, books, music, tv and movies that interests me. It’s named after Jonathan Lethem’s essay in a 2007 issue of Harper’s where nearly every word was taken from another source and put together to form a cohesive whole about cultural borrowing and reworking.
