  1. Last night I have been involved in an impromptu scavenger hunt for the correct attribution of a quote that has been circulating unchecked in anglophone books over the last 20 years. In particular, the attribution of the idea that a «great city should be "an inventory of the possible"» to Descartes went viral following a tweet by @timoreilly.

  2. The task to check whether the attribution was correct was taken over almost immediately by @tcarmody, and I and others were glad to use a late Sunday evening to help him out in the quest.
