The sources of information are out there and worth digging up if only to bookend some thoughts that I’ve had about expanding the existing article. Which is all I’ve been thinking about lately, in fact: here we are trying to get through the rest of the day and I’m stuck on go go go, let’s write up some more of the world’s accumulated knowledge in a single place.
It does feel like a race against time at some point: here we are, this is what we’ve got and how are we going to save it?
