Sherry Turkle's contribution to NY Times Sunday Review, adapted from her book "Reclaiming Conversation: The Power of Talk in a Digital Age"
In solitude we find ourselves; we prepare ourselves to come to conversation with something to say that is authentic, ours. If we can’t gather ourselves, we can’t recognize other people for who they are. If we are not content to be alone, we turn others into the people we need them to be. If we don’t know how to be alone, we’ll only know how to be lonely.
Updated June 24, 2015. Altra Lone Peak 1.5 has been my shoe of choice for some time, but now that the supplies are close to non-existent and my own stash is dwindling, it is time to look for a replacement shoe. Lone Peak 2.0 would be the obvious choice, but I didn’t feel as comfortable in them as I did in the 1.5 (the toe-off doesn’t feel right). I decided to try out the Superior 2.0, as I’ve used Superior 1.5 for “everything” shoe including some short runs, and generally liked it, aside from the lack of any sort of lugs. Heads up: As a big Lone Peak 1.5 fan, my review might be a little biased and somewhat of a comparison between the two shoes.
Simplenote has been my note taking app of choice for a while now, but recently I've been annoyed with missing features, weird UI, and lack of integration. iA Writer Pro (Writer Pro from here on) came as unlikely replacement, but I already owned the app and some of its features were perfect match for my needs. I've now been using the new setup for about a month, and so far so good.
