"Beefheartian philosopher of technology"

I was first surprised, then totally impressed, and finally rather embarrassed to only just now learn that Langdon Winner was invited to join Captain Beefheart. Wow.

'I'm not even here I just stick around for my friends': The Odyssey of Captain Beefheart by Langdon Winner

Hey, thanks so much for this little nugget of Beefheart-alia. Such a surprise to meet him here (I got here - your blog - by Googling Lucy Suchman's forthcoming book).

And oddly (which is to say, ordinarily, where Beefheart is involved) I "met" him only yesterday. Reading the classic of 70s fuck-and-tell autobiography by Pamela des Barres, "I'm with the band - Confessions of a groupie" I discovered that she got into the groupie business via - well, guess who: the Captain.

Too much synchonicity for one week. I must go lie down.
