Alan - whilst the specifics of the code discussion might be a bit beyond me I want to say, as I've said repeatedly here and elsewhere, how crucial both your work and your example have been to me and what a giant shadow you cast.
warmest wishes

Interesting - I feel since I wasn't included in the list of successful 
code-poets, I feel that my legitimacy is in disconnect, which it usually 
is. The result is that I have less at stake here; I recognize the amazing 
work of Paul and mez, but also felt myself (and some others) at 'that 
level' such as it is as well. Which is why I've been arguing for a more 
open acceptance of just about everything within and without code, 
codework, almost any related domain, however defined. Or another ugly way 
of putting it, I hate lists, however defined (again) - on a personal level 
because someone or some group is always excluded, and since I'm more often 
than not in that group, I see them, themselves, as hegemonic in function, 
although not in intention.
