Text? #dahphdie Feb 14 th 2012 Mike Cosgrave,
Follow on from last week Price, Kenneth M., “Edition, Project, Database, Archive, Thematic Research Collection: What’s in a Name? “ Digital Humanities Quarterly, Summer 2009 Volume 3 Number 3 “1) a strict definition of database — as a technical term in an electronic context database refers primarily to a collection of structured data that is managed by a database management system, most commonly based on a relational model; and 2) a looser use of database that employs the term on a more metaphorical level.” “As Folsom notes, "Whitman formed entire lines as they would eventually appear in print, but then he treated each line like a separate data entry, a unit available to him for endless reordering, as if his lines of poetry were portable and interchangeable, could be shuffled and almost randomly scattered to create different but remarkably similar poems" [Folsom 2007, ].

Wilson: I suppose the short answer is because politics are in me, as far as I can remember. Farther than that: they were in my family; for generations before me, as they were in the families of dozens of members of the Labour party. The first time that I can remember thinking systematically about politics was when I was seven. I was in hospital with appendicitis. My parents came in to see me the night after my operation and I told them not to stay too long or they’d be late to vote – for Philip Snowden. Then when I was ten I went to West Australia where my uncle was an Australian MP and later President of the Upper House. That was my first visit to a politician. P F P, Lc Fm, Ff Pm Lc, Fa
