"At the beginning of Discourse Networks 1800/1900 stood the Fugs with their song 'Exorcizing the Evils Spirits out of the Pentagon.' At the end stand words that have brought other words onto a screen.

"There is no end to the writing of books, wrote the preacher. Even books written to bring about the end of books and of their ordering submit to this pronouncement."
--Friedrich Kittler, "Afterword," Discourse Networks 1800/1900

"For the first time in the history of the Pentagon, there will be a grope-in within a hundred feet of this place."
--Tuli Kupferberg, "Exorcising the Evils Spirits out of the Pentagon"
