Let’s play tag

Liked the piece in today’s Guardian about Franco Moretti’s vision of how to deal with data (in the form of literature) online:

“Merely having all these resources available doesn’t mean, of itself, that they produce interesting answers. They won’t. You have to pose interesting questions. That is what people do in labs and that we, in English studies, are completely unprepared to do. Pose interesting questions. The fact is, in the very near future we shall have a vastly different field of materials but, really, no different frame of mind to do something with those materials.”
