Exhaustion. Luckily, the laser printer is still doing solid work, jutting out one page after the other. 6 times 308 pages. I did not get a lot of sleep last night. And I have some difficulties focussing on things that are more than a few meters away. I guess everything will be fine. Tomorrow I will drop the dissertations on their table…

The last line.Wednesday, September 13th, 2006
Last night I finally reached it! Time to take a deep breath and then plunge into the text again… Moving, changing, editing, cutting, adding – this is what will keep me occupied for another week.

The space of a dissertation.Sunday, September 10th, 2006
Since I am writing about the production of space right now, and since I neglect abstract or representational space in my dissertation a bit, I want to offer at least to you, dear readers, a small insight into the space in which I myself produce knowledge and abstractions. On the image here you can see what my workspace looks like. (You can click on it to open or download it at full size.) Actually, I still enjoy this environment and I am very thankful to the Redlers for producing such an excellent piece of software. Not a single crash, and that with more than 140 images.

The final frontier.Tuesday, September 5th, 2006
Well, today I have finished the last empirical section of my dissertation. Only the conclusionary chapter remains to be written – it consists of probably eight sections and, as usual, each section should take me a day to write. This means I should reach the last page sometime next week. Whew. And then: correction, shifting, adding, cutting and so on and so forth. I am now on page 249 with more than 140 images embedded in the text. Must sleep now.
