I know it has been a while since I have posted here. So many things going on besides work that it has been hard to think about writing on Ease Of Blogging.
We are remodeling our kitchen cabinets, that is my wife and I. Replacing the wood panels in the doors with glass, replacing all the shelving and hinges. Adding door handles and then painting everything – including ourselves. It is a labor of love with a little pain thrown in for good measure.
Work has also eaten into my time so my casual/learning reading has not always been up to par with whatever par is. I woke up this morning to 6 magazines laying on the dinning room table and was immediately reminded that I had some old business information to look into – old by now. At least my Google Reader does not remind that I have things to read.
I suspect that renewals of subscriptions one day will all be for online reading and I will read the magazines on my computer, my TV, or on my Kindle.
I will admit to giving a great deal of my discretionary time to reading on my Kindle. I have finished “I Live In The Future” by Nick Bilton and it is really, really good. The further into the book the more I just wanted to keep on reading. I am now following Nick’s blog.
On another note.
This morning I decided to write. I am at McDonald’s having breakfast and inspiration takes hold. Now I had to wait for the computer to boot. While waiting it made me think that I too want an ‘instant on’ computer. One that is right there, right now, when I am ready to use it. Take it out of the sleeve and it is on. No muss, no fuss, no waiting. The waiting becomes a big sink hole.
Now one would say, ah ha, the iPad. Well yes that could be however it is a bit awkward with it’s on screen keyboard and I happen to use Windows Live Writer to do my writing and that is not available on the iPad. Someone might say “well learn something different” and my response; “This is the best, why leave it”. So the conundrum.
Now what was it that I was going to write about?
