Meta, Circular

I took this picture of Maya taking a picture of a Skype session with her grandfather, in which the camera on my computer embedded a picture of her in the corner of the picture his computer took of him holding up a picture of me from when I was 12 years old, holding a camera. While thinking to myself privately that Douglas Hofstadter was, on reflection, a bit of a simpleton.

It took me a few minutes to shake this moment off, let me tell you.


  1. My brain, it hurts.

  2. Count the cameras around you right now. Be generous, anything whose job is to sense/record light. I’m at 11 without trying hard.

    The future is data.
