“Amidst all the attention given to the sciences as to how they can lead to the cure of all diseases and daily problems of mankind, I believe that the biggest breakthrough will be the realization that the arts, which are conventionally considered ‘useless,’ will be recognized as the whole reason why we ever try to live longer or live more prosperously. The arts are the science of enjoying life.”—John Maeda, via The New York Times
Previous blog entries? Gone. No backups, no second thoughts. Partly a knee-jerk reaction to an anonymous nincompoop, mostly to prove a point to a mistaken, computer-obsessed loved one. Am I sad about losing everything? Not as much as you might think.
As enjoyable as it is, what we create for ourselves online is not an actual life. At most, necessary only to help support a lifestyle. But I have no brand to promote, no skill set to peddle, no hidden agenda. I am here for one reason only: I care about your company. Some of you, poopsies, are very spectacular indeed.
