Guy Mendes contributes Wendell Berry photo to Wikipedia

With the help of the good folks at The Berry Center, we have received from photographer Guy Mendes a delightful photo for use in the Wikipedia article on Mr. Berry. Mr. Mendes has very generously released this photo under a Creative Commons license which allows the photo to be widely used.

I am also very thankful to photographer David A. Marshall, who created and donated the previous (and original) photo of Mr. Berry reading at Indiana's Frankfort Library in 2004 or 2005.

Blog Watch: On Wendell Berry and computers

I am typing on the MacBook that I purchased by all but emptying my research budget at the beginning of the summer. It is a beautifully designed and crafted machine. I enjoy the feel of the keys, the sleek economy of the design, and the superb software that runs the system. The physicality of how I am writing this and the way in which the physicality includes a well-made human artifact matters, because I just finished reading Wendell Berry’s essay “Feminism, the Body, and the Machine.”
