Reach out and push someone away


Cultural artifacts existed in a hierarchy, with opera and fine art at the top, and stripping at the bottom.
David Brooks has a great little piece that deserves a read. As someone who was an early adopter but now has fallen off the technobus, I can only watch it trundle off into the distance, radical redos of significant improvements of paradigm-shifting upgrades trailing like so many cans strung from strings tied to the rear bumper.

Being antisocial has finally paid off, saving me untold amounts of money by simply not caring to be in touch in the least.
