At one point, I used to blind cc my agent any email I sent that might lead to a book deal.
There was a time I used to blind cc my academic deadhead friend every fascinating bit of music information or dialogue or culture i saw online. That was a form of blogging. If Nicholas has saved that old email archive, i bet it’s publishable.
I wonder what would happen if I put a few people on a permanent bcc list and then permitted myself to forget that they were listening in? It might be the closest I could get (in the scientific sense of modeling and approximation) to an autobiography in this medium yet.
