Ten Armed Bandit

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.).
Read it for yourself, here.  See the awful series of photos, too, if you can stomach it.
Until we meet again.
*  Usually I just feel very quietly sad and hopeless about this kind of thing.
