Lotta work this weekend. I guess with Fred out of the race I can pretty much speed past any political news. So there’s that.
Meanwhile, I’ve got to see Sweeney Todd before it leaves theaters, get the Ed Emberley interview up and prep the next articles I’m working on. I’ve also started work on a chat system. Don’t ask me why, it’s just something I’ve always wanted to do.
Anyway I don’t wonder that a lot of bloggers end up in their own self-made echo chambers. I could see doing nothing but scouring the ‘net for interesting items and commenting on them. But ultimately, where do you get the sort of perspective you need from, you know, having a “real life”.
As a programmer, I know all about abstractions. It’s easy enough to spec a program that reads someone’s mind and does exactly what they want, regardless of what they actually say. Implementation remains elusive, however.
