The moment of distraction

The Electronic Book Review has a review of The Moment of Complexity: Emerging Network Culture by Mark C Taylor. His name was impressed on me by his short but stimulating contribution to a book on Maurice Blanchot. As a result, the title and subject of this book came as a surprise.

It seems he's written many books with more attractive subjects and titles than the one under review: Tears, Altarity and Grave Matters. The latter is a meditation on "the graves of American and European artists, architects, writers, philosophers and musicians who shaped modern culture". Cool.
