Writings by Henry Warwick and others.
"As described by the cover jacket blurb on the book, "The Greatest Inventions of the Past 2000 Years", edited by John Brockman,
Henry Warwick is one of our leading thinkers. Not that you can really tell by much of the doggerel and mindless rambling he passes
off as cogitation. Many think he is more of a leading stinker. The link below will take you to a repository of his meanderings. Be advised-
I think he is a depressing mean spirited creepy old veck with dodgy personal hygiene, and is dead set and determined to take the lot of you
down with him."

I keep an occasional blog called Novalark on Wordpress. You can find it HERE. Novalark is a term I came across listening to William S Burroughs on the album "Sugar, Alcohol, and Meat". I always liked that word, but was never able to think of a way to use it until recently. Nova means new, and Lark is a kind of adventure. Lark was also a model of car by Studebaker, and Nova was a model of car made by Chevrolet that I owned, and this all makes the term even more amusing. You will find many different amusements and diversions on Novalark, interspersed with a few moments of clarity and insight.
I used to write a column at an online magazine for electronic music, CreativeSynth. The column was called SPARK. Those articles are available below.
I've re-edited them a bit, making them more worthwhile a read with fewer typos.
The last sections, titled Lifecycles of Cultural Commodities was the basis of a lecture I gave at the Refrains Conference in Vancouver Canada, in October 2001. I think the points in it still stand, but aren't properly applied. I think that the scope isn't merely a style of music, but music itself as it has come to exist in this age of Mechanical Reproduction, and will come to fruition as a discourse on post-Musical society.

Before I committed it to the recycle bin, I found the article, and it is still quite interesting! I did several searches on the internet, and as far as I know, it basically doesn't exist any more. So, rather than have it disappear, I sat and typed the whole thing up. I have NO idea what magazine it's from.
