There is numinous lunacy... and then there is luminous basoonacy. Or
perhaps not. What does it all mean? Ah yes, the eternal question. We'd
all like to know the answer, but such knowledge is not granted to just
any old common ordinary mortal.
      And it's not very often that I run a press release verbatim.
More like never. Especially not here. But I think you'll agree that
this is an extra special press release. I don't know Jonathon
Keats, but from the sound of this, I'd like to. I think. I know Paulina
Borsook through her book -- <a

target="_blank">Cyberselfish: A Critical Romp through the Terribly
Libertarian Culture of High Tech -- but I do so ever wish she'd <a
href="maito:clo-@panix.com">get in touch.
      And now, the moment you've all been waiting for. May we have
the envelope, please...

        SAN FRANCISCO - Following several years of
highly-secretive privately-funded research, conceptual artist Jonathon
Keats announces comprehensive improvements to the metric system,
anticipated finally to make the meter a viable unit of measure in the
United States. The system will be introduced to the public at Modernism
Gallery, in San Francisco, on October 27, 2005. Mr. Keats will be
available to provide expert calibration...

"in this day and age, everyone has an ipod, and most people have tivo,"
mr. keats argues. "mass-customization is the cutting edge of democracy.
by taking this personal approach to measurements -- to standards of
time and space and energy and power -- we can each become completely
autonomous."
