New Developments in CES HackFebruary 25, 2010
Here’s an update on the centuries-old CES (or Cogito Ergo Sum) hack. For those out of the loop, about 170 years ago, a critical letter written by one of the grandpappys of metaphysics and epistemology, René Descartes, was stolen from the archives of Paris’s Institute de France. It suddenly popped up in the godforsaken state of Pennsylvania. All of this could’ve been settled decades ago with an appropriately-targeted FOIA request, but instead Emerson and his henchmen at Haverford are now scrambling to repair the damage.
