Dear Every One,
The episode of the burnt cookies has not learned me one bit- I continue to warn you about the dangers of communication technology, even as I use it to speak to you here.
I surprised myself by being almost outraged* by the idea of whole academic arenas and think tanks devoted to keeping us steadily devicing (it's a new, annoying verb-form: shed a quick tear and file it with the other ones: sciencing, gifting, etc.).
Until we meet again.
* Usually I just feel very quietly sad and hopeless about this kind of thing.
