“We read to know that we’re not alone”

Sorry things have been fairly quiet here of late. I’ve reached a sort of email event horizon where messages that require action or response are arriving faster than I can act or respond to them. After that you go into a kind of tailspin…

The quotation, by the way, is from C.S.Lewis. For your contemplation.

I listen to Radio 3 for the same reason…

If it’s an email event horizon then you’ll never get out – forget a ‘tailspin’, observers will be unable to detect any signal from you at all…. so it’s more like 100% packet loss 🙂

I can’t think of a pithy way to say, “We enable comments on our blogs to know we’re not alone”.

Got Something To Say:

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *

To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:
     [This is not a link](http://example.com)

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
