I just quit my job at Sun Microsystems

I spent almost an hour trying to get printing and faxing working at Kinkos, with lack of success. Walking over to the Online Cafe, I got printing and faxing that Just Worked, for cheaper. Plus I was able to enjoy a tasty drink while I worked. And the computer time and wifi time were free.

Burning Man was again amazing and transformative. The camp worked decently well, and we're already talking about what to do next year.

One day I walked out to the Man, then the Temple, and then the Meditatory. Barefoot. In a duststorm. I wrote a fair amount on the Temple. I burned my feet. It was worth every step.

I know that you've been looking forward to your next step. Hopefully you've found a great one. I'm looking forward to hearing all about it.


And I'm glad that Burning Man was so awesome. I wonder what sorts of things you wrote on the Temple... Curious Lisha is so curious.

Congratulations. Oracle was on the verge of sucking out your soul. You'll probably do better as a freelancer for a few years anyway.

I'm glad to hear that Something Spiritual™ seems to have worked for you. Despite my hard-nosed realism, I recognize that our human brains need some connection to the numinous.

You guys should come next year. Well, Omaha would have to wear a blindfold at night...
