Rough and Dirty archive of Michael Wilson’s writings, collected over the years.

I first stumbled on Michael Wilson’s writings on a bbs back in the mid 90’s. His ideas were highly provocative and interesting and he was a gentleman in his correspondence. These ideas speak for themselves, without commentary. This archive exists without the author’s permission.
