Hesitation to use the I may be a tell-tale sign that the I does not know itself fully. Or maybe the I doesn’t know which I, of the many different Is, to use. In any case, there is an I. And there is a You. The You is validated by the I. There couldn’t be a You without the I. But the I also becomes a You through the validation of I through You. And so, the I also exists thanks to You. And so to You who is reading this confused speech of I, THANK YOU. I's existence has become meaningful because of You.______________________________

How to focus in the age of distraction
If you struggle with focusing, you are not alone. With Facebook, Twitter, email and the entire Internet well, one can feel overwhelmed at times. Distractions are all over the place. I hate to use a cliché here, but there is a reason for it; which is sometimes we just need to stop and smell the roses.
Something I will remember for sure.
Welcome to Zuckerberg’s Law
One might think with all the changes Facebook made this past week that we are and will be over-sharing to the point of ad nauseam. With the new Facebook Timeline profile, literally your life is out there for the world to see. If you don’t have the new Timeline profile yet, you can get it here. My philosophy is though, you can only see what I let you see; meaning if you don’t want it to be public, don’t post it. Just my .02 cents.
Funny strip. :))
I just took the new Facebook Timeline profile for a spin and it’s not half bad. It’s a clean new look. The top cover banner helps set the profile. There is a lot to the new profile that you can drill into now so there’s more to learn. In time everyone will get used to it and more fun will come after others begin to use it where we can go to their profiles and view their own timeline; which is what Facebook wants you to do. I think Facebook really stepped up their game in a sense and Google Plus now has a lot of catching up to do.
Aaaaand it’s aliiiiiive. :D My own Facebook timeline is up and running. Unfortunately, only the developers can see it for now. I figured, since so many changes are coming, why not jump into it and embrace it. I’m giving myself a headstart in getting used to the changes instead of hating on it. And I like the idea of the timeline (hello Plurk). I sometimes like going back through old posts and I hate that I have to go over EVERYTHING just to get back to my earlier ones. So this one’s pretty cool. It does take some getting used to but hey, that’s change. :)
The Bermuda Triangle of Productivity - where does all the time go?
This is all quite exciting. I drew this one day after two unrelated friends complained about how they get sucked into certain websites instead of doing work, which is exactly what I do, and now it’s ended up on mtv.com, in my own rss feeds, and being mentioned in the Guardian, which was rather unexpected. It seems to have struck a chord with the internets anyway, so thanks for the nice words everyone! NOW GET BACK TO WORK.
I think Tumblr should be added in here somewhere…
Tumblr encompasses all. :3 haha
