I'm happy to report that for over three weeks I've been dodging RSS feeds. Haven't seen a single one. I'm sure I'll return to the fold in a measured way, but after going off the grid for awhile I've made a point of not immersing myself in information.
Despite not being fully jacked in it still seems like I'm living in some proto-Snow Crash world. Apparently Wells Fargo just bought an island in Second Life and there is a plague running wild in Worlds of Warcraft. WTF?
