Thank Goodness for that Liberal Arts Education

Recently I've been working on a paper with a deadline in early January. It's part of an interdisciplinary collaboration.

This paper includes phrases such as: "the interface and the predicate share responsibility" and "the traditional taxonomies of digital epistemology unwisely subjugate and oftentimes irrationally edit data." We cite Henri Bergson.

How many drinks for each use of "epistemology"?

Fortunately, due to my secret past as an English major, I can keep up with this non-scientific collaboration, and I can write hundreds of words about big ideas while using a suitable collection of jargon.

I'm kind of digging the digital humanities. We should be able to get a lot of papers out of this project.
