I came across this book, Elegant Complexity, a companion reader to IJ. My first reaction is that I wished I'd discovered it before Infinite Summer started! But then I saw that it itself is 500 pages long, so I think I'm going to chase this Infinite Summer with an Elegant Complexity autumn.

I came across Elegant Complexity via this post by Jason Kottke about how to read IJ. He is a pretty prolific blogger from the early days of the internet, and apparently a huge DFW/IJ fan. He appears to have written about the book several times on his site, and even has some association with the original 2010 Infinite Summer folks!

Two great resources that I intend to dig more into as I have time.
