Paper Computers
Paper computing (see Kirschenbaum) and paper prototyping are relevant to present-day project design and development because they provide us with a sense of history while bypassing widespread tendencies to focus on whiz-bang technologies, which may demand significant resources that are not exactly accessible.Some ways to prototype historical texts: imitation (labour of the text), forgery (economy of the text), scenario (interaction through the text), story (performance of the text), counterfactual (norms of the text), model (logic of the text), glitch (negotiations with the text), and wish (ideology of the text). I’ll elaborate during seminar. They are conducive to various humanities methods (e.g., remediation and versioning), too, and they stress how people interact with materials. Speculative design (see Dunne and Raby and Lukens and DiSalvo) is useful since it puts design first, rather than treating it as the last step (“polishing” or “finishing”) of a project. It also privileges conjecture over proof while corresponding meaningfully with studies of speculative fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and futurisms, such as Afrofuturisms (see Nelson), Indigenous Futurisms (see Dillon), and near futures (see Bleecker et al.).

Shave and a Haircut - Wikipedia
In the Canadian province of Quebec, the tune is frequently used among children to induce silence. The lyrics are "Chip chocolat gomme, Peanut!" (English: "Chip chocolate gum, Peanut!").[25]

The tune is used in Catalan with a different lyric: "Nas de barraca. Sant Boi" (English: "Shack nose. Sant Boi"). It is also tapped, as a door knock. The Catalan lyrics may come from Blanes, where it was sung twice with Nas de barraca. Sant Boi. Cinc de carmelos pel noi (English: Shack nose. Sant Boi. Five candies for the boy).[26]

In Spain, it is sung with the lyrics, Una copita... de Ojén (English: "A shot of schnapps").

In Irish barroom music, the tune is sometimes tagged at the end of a song. The performer sings the first part to the lyrics, "How is your aul' one?" (read: "old one," a slang term for mother), to which the audience replies, "Gameball!" (A slang term meaning A-OK).[27]

In Sweden it is well-known as Kvart över elva... halv tolv, which means A quarter past eleven... half past eleven. The twist doesn't work as well in English, as the English time system treats 11:30 as a continuation of eleven instead of as the first half of twelve. Halv tolv thus means half twelve and is the correct Swedish equivalent of half past eleven. In Sweden, the melody was also used in a commercial for the Bronzol brand of candy with the slogan Hälsan för halsen—Bronzol (English: Health for your throat—Bronzol).

In Icelandic the lyrics are Saltkjöt og baunir... túkall (English: "Salt meat and split peas... two krona" (króna is the currency in Iceland)).

How William Gibson Keeps His Science Fiction Real | The New Yorker
In his late twenties, Gibson earned an English degree at the University of British Columbia. He took a class taught by the feminist sci-fi pioneer Susan Wood; she suggested that, instead of writing an analytical paper, he might turn in a story of his own. (At her urging, he sold the story, “Fragments of a Hologram Rose,” to a small magazine.) He began writing science fiction in earnest only when Graeme was on the way, and it seemed to him that his career had to start, or else. Deborah was in grad school, so he took care of the baby, writing “Neuromancer” while Graeme napped. He learned to work iteratively. He still rereads his manuscripts from the beginning each day—an increasing burden, as each book goes on—stripping away what’s superfluous and squirrelling new ideas into the gaps. (Having shown a technology used properly in one scene, he might show someone misusing it in another.) His plots are Tetris-like, their components snapping together at the last possible moment until the space of the novel is filled.

Banned Books – Button Shy
It is the hope of every literary character that their tale will inspire people for generations to come. But how can people be inspired by your story if it’s on the banned books list? Your story MUST be told, and it's time for you to take matters into your own hands!

Banned Books is a solo game featuring ousted literary characters fighting back against the Powers-That-Be to restore their books to the shelves. Each turn you will select actions that will progress your agenda track, hamper the agenda tracks of the Powers, utilize your characters unique abilities or manipulate your tableau. If you can advance your progress token quickly enough to convince 2 of the 3 Powers-That-Be to remove your book from the banned list, you win. But if the majority of the Powers advance their tokens and make up their minds first, or drain your characters stamina, you will be banished from shelves forever!

Two Kinds of Power: An Essay on Bibliographical Control by Patrick Wilson | Goodreads
In this text, Patrick Wilson puts forth the idea that bibliographic control is a kind of power—and that, if knowledge is power, bibliographic control is a power over power. He argues that there are two kinds of power from bibliographic control: the power to find all resources about a single topic, and the power to find all the resources that will be most useful to the searcher. Wilson then embarks on a quest to figure out exactly how one can obtain and best use this second power of “descriptive control.” As a former professor of philosophy, Wilson pays special attention to clarifying the meaning of any term he uses, as a number of terms in the library sciences field can have multiple or nuanced meanings. (The term “relevance” receives special attention.) To conclude, Wilson argues for the equality of access to bibliographical apparatus, and thus for more equal access to information. (less)

Apollo special: Brian Eno's moon music | New Scientist
When director Al Reinert approached me about doing the Apollo music – which ended up in the 1989 film For All Mankind – he told me there was music on the moon shot. Every astronaut was allowed to take one cassette of their favourite music. All but one took country and western. They were cowboys exploring a new frontier, this one just happened to be in space. We worked the piece around the idea of zero-gravity country music.
