I'm just having a moment as i realize that my remembered indignation at the green card lottery Usenet post is old enough to drink legally. Commercial spam is 21 years old.

The houses Christine and i find ourselves liking have front porches on which we could set up our rocking chairs. Yup, not too long before i'm out there with a cane telling the kids to get off our LAN.

Man, that's a depressing thought. In some ways I am thrilled by the amount of info out there now compared to then, but in others I'm depressed by the percentage that's junk.

It is really quite incredible how one's curiosity can be fed so easily. I know there's junk -- and bitterness and meanness -- but there's also been so much connection.

And then i think of app culture and gamification and rating people and friends and.... I guess the best we all can do is be intentional about our choices and thoughtful about how we relate to one another.

I'm suddenly struck: what is the difference between a porch and a deck? The covering? Are porches always in the front and decks in the back?

Hmmm.

Hmm, that sounds right. We have a deck that is half sheltered by the roof so i was suddenly wondering why we called it a deck and not a porch. Just a weird condo construct, i guess.
