stealing time from workPosted: November 13, 2007
Heeheeeee! I am blogging at work! Crazy. Of course, there is no wireless reception, so I won’t be able to publish until I get home. I heart conferences. Such a easy day.
Dean Spade, and his friend Colby Lenz, have some interesting things to say about cell phones (there was also a good piece on makezine). I am particularly interested in the idea of luxury goods that become needs. He points out, correctly I think, that we lived our lives without cellphone not so very long ago and now they are as common as flies on shit. While the subject of the article reads as phones, the main point seems to be thinking. That is, think before you do things, buy things, believe things. I am a fan of thinking.
