a lonely journeyOnce again overstated has lain dormant while I sought answers to some of life’s most pondered questions: will I ever graduate? If I do, what the hell comes next? How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop? Which shaker does the salt go in? Are spheres the only type of bounded three-dimensional space possible that contain no holes?

I tried Google Answers. I tried fasting and I rewatched The Matrix. Without any clear resolve, this existential period has come to a close. Or rather, I’m not so distracted by the rest of my life that I can actually do more with my weblog than just delete comment spam. I’ll be attending the Internet + Society 2004 meeting starting tomorrow, so look forward to some reactionary note taking.

  1. Glad to know you’ve been busy pondering life’s questions. When you figure out the answers, will you let me know? I especially interested in the one about ever graduating. They tell me that I’ll graduate in May 2005, but I’m not sure I believe them. But once we’ve both finished, we should agree to make a cross-country trek or meet in the middle and catch up.

  2. Reactionary note-taking? Like “they should have killed this damn internet when it was still in DARPA’s womb. We should all go back to quill pens on hand-scraped vellum…”? That kind of thing?
