￼Number of reasons.
haven’t really thought why.
a) studying Internet culture. Wikipedia is that.
b) studying American centered western education
c) The birth of different academic fields
d) what is the origin of concepts over time?
e) is it possible to get useful information about human behavior without directly referencing human behavior? ( this case, simply working with nodes and edges and data, can I re-create existing systems? can I find unseen connections that haven’t been seen before that can be useful?￼)
f) ultimately I’m following a whim without knowing which direction it’s going in
and I hope the purpose reveals itself as I go along￼￼
