Am reading Anthony Grafton's Worlds Made By Words. Grafton is a genius and this book, a collection of mostly previously published essays on intellectual community and history, is an absolute revelation. This is stuff I have wanted to know about for ten years.

Anthony Grafton sounds an immensely interesting fellow indeed; the kind of guest you would love round for dinner.

He does his public intellectual bit, working with the Slought Foundation and Cabinet magazine. One of my teachers studied with him. Six degrees, my friend.
