information lifestyle

I want a Muzak jammer that I can turn on every year on the day after Thanksgiving, and turn off on the day after Christmas. Do you think a 100km radius would be enough, or should I be more philanthropic? Perhaps a satellite system?

Ignorance and ignominy are two words for the same thing; that is why members of Congress should be required to calculate their own taxes.

This is a long way of saying that I have burrowed so deeply into the information lifestyle that physical events, like weather, pass far above my life. Nothing actually has to happen any more.
