Thank you for the thoughtful commentary, Ben. I am of two minds about much of the technology I depend on, and have seriously considered going analog for much of my day. I'm glued to my computer/blackberry all day for work, and wonder how much more I could accomplish/relaxed I would be if I went analog in the evenings/weekends. At least for a couple of days a week. I have to admit, I love my Blackberry, and the constant hit of info from news sites and random interval response feedback it gives me from Facebook and Twitter. I also really really love my wife's chocolate M&M cookies though, and wonder if my overconsumption of electronic stimulation is as unhealthy as if I were to eat my fill of baking.

In the end, the signal to noise ratio on Twitter has gotten really bad recently (@raisethehammer notwithstanding), and the people I care about most on Facebook don't seem to be spending much time there anymore, so maybe a bit of a step back is in order.

There is, after all, a pretty good library system in Hamilton. I'm sure I could find something to do on the train.
