Twitter is pure postmodernism. Without context, the author’s dead. On a statement “I like X”, we project “You hate Y and Z, and are ignorant about A, B, and C.” The joylessness of postmodernism's here too. We're in a private cinema that only shows films we've personally edited.

"What we call Man's power over Nature turns out to be a power exercised by some men over other men with Nature as its instrument." ~, from 'The Abolition of Man.' Was reminded of this quote this morning and its abiding relevance.

The one on the group cover photo seemed only mildly censorious. As to your second question, I suppose it depends on what they are disapproving of. I expect we'll behaved animals to share my prejudices.

I don't know which disquiets me more: That there is a Facebook group called "Disapproving Corgis" that has 325,421 members, or that Facebook thinks I might want to join it.

You will be seeing me. I'll be pitching you an 8th century novel that I half jokingly describe as "Gilmore Girls meets Vikings."

Judging from the women I know, men overestimate the degree to which women like a man who has six-pack abs and money and underestimate the degree to which women like a man who is an emotionally tormented sea-captain in the service of His Majesty during the Napoleonic Wars

I think it has been said before that the only reason for writing is that you can't not write. How else to justify a pursuit so lonesome, so sedentary, and so poorly compensated?

New on the blog: an annotated transcript from an email interview I held on the tech writing field, peppered with plenty of Dilbert comics that tech writers and editors will appreciate.

When did Writers become the enemy of words? Words are a wonder, a delight, a trasfiguration. More words. More words. By God, more words!

I think we must consider the pure logistics of the matter. Tobacco, playing cards, and whisky are portable and have low freight costs. There are more choices when you don't have to carry your vices in your saddle bags. Nostalgia for poverty is gauche.

A nod to the 'Every Page is Page One' message driven for years via ** Content discovery and consumption is our main job. Not navigation enforcement. ** is the new .
