I’m getting ready to head up to the family cottage for 10 days of eating, drinking, and making merry. We don’t actually head up for a couple of days, but I’ve already started packing. Not my clothes (note to self: laundry!), but information.
This exercise of loading up my laptop with weeks worth of content brings into focus just how caught in the net I’ve become. The web has become an extension of my brain. I no longer remember facts, but rather I track their source. I don’t keep client notes on my machine, but on a hosted web service. I don’t buy magazines anymore, instead I get the info straight from the source.
I hadn’t noticed just how dependent on the net I’d become. Interesting, and a bit scary.
Suffice it to say that things will be a bit quiet over here for a bit. I wish all of you the very best. Here’s to you and yours!
