"Baudelaire imagined the fully contemporary artist of his own day—someone drifting through the city, bombarded with stimuli—as 'a kaleidoscope endowed with consciousness'. Today, the internet being the new city, a teeming cosmopolis of myriad precincts and neighbourhoods, you would have to update the metaphor and argue for the fully contemporary artist as a search engine endowed with consciousness."
-- Jary W. Keithmann, The Glissades of DataScape Mastery (2003)
