Haraway's Manifestos

I'm working on this beautiful text now by Donna Haraway called "the Companion Species Manifesto". Haraway, who in the 80's wrote the groundbreaking "Cyborg Manifesto", became at the turn of the millennium more and more interested in animals, and especially dogs. At some point she writes: "I tell stories about stories, all the way down. Woof."
How wonderful!

Luckily, both these texts are available online for free: The Old School Cyborg Manifesto (with the kick-ass ending "I would rather be a cyborg than a goddess") is here and the newer "Companion Species" one is here.
