It seems appropriate that the first item posted is the first page of the first draft of David Foster Wallace’s most important book. OK, it seems more than a little presumptuous, but it is still a nice example of a first draft page. And what do we have here? Indeed, this is my firstly drafted post for what I hope might someday be important, too.1

This is more than a little absurd when you consider the number of sources I traversed to get to the original. For your pleasure: Via The Millions, via the Atlantic, via McNally Jackson, via Draft Journal via The Harry Ransom Center at UT Austin. They’re all good and worthwhile sites to look at, but I won’t blame you for jumping straight to the source at UT Austin.
