One of the most important features of this blog, at least for me, is that it has helped me "find the others," in Timothy Leary's phrase. When I was in college in the 1970s (University of Oklahoma) I read Illuminatus! for the first time and met libertarians on campus who also had read the book. But since then, except for contacts with with old friends from OU, I can't remember interacting with other RAW fans.
I have found it very gratifying that because of this blog, I have met other RAW fans. I hope this blog has been a vehicle for some of the rest of you to find the others, too.
In connection with that, here is a fine illustration of Timothy Leary's "find the others" rap from Zen Pencils.
I love that Zen Pencils "Find The Others" comic. That guy does beautiful work!
This blog is my fav RAW beacon.
The dedication to both consistency & quality is really extraordinary.
Keep up the GREAT WORK!
I stop by here just about everyday to "find the others". And it was this blog that really got me into the great Timothy Leary's work, for that I'm very thankful.
I hit the page everyday, too. I remain amazed and inspired at how active you keep it. When I first read Illuminatus! (~23 yrs ago) and was subsequently hooked and read every RAW book I could find (usually at Half Price Books) there were very few people I knew that had even heard of him. I've enjoyed the interactions with all the folks that come to this blog and it's very encouraging to see/meet so many more (and the numbers seem to be growing!)
I have only very recently found your blog and it's become one of the handful of pages i check daily. I love that you update it every day and i love that you attract regular commentary from your readers.
I find it disappointing that RAW is not more widely read, his articulation of the tenets of general semantics has literally changed the way I communicate and process information.
So to be able to have my two cents with a bunch of people who know who he is, is an opportunity i greatly appreciate.
Thank you, everyone. I would probably have quit the blog long ago but for the people I've met.
And a hat tip to you, sir.
