Project: Objects that are enumerated in Graham Harman’s “Prince of Networks”

Graham Harman’s Prince of Networks is the most exciting book of philosophy I’ve read in a long, long time. Partly I find it exciting due to its prose style. I’m fascinated by the Whitmanesque enumeration of objects/actors/actants in the book, so I wrote a script to parse the original text for things that are probably lists of objects, and then I did a little manual data cleanup on the resulting output.

Once I had the data, it was easy to create a page that gives you a random object.

I’m not really sure why I made it, but hey, it only took a couple hours.
