An excerpt from the latest powlist:

My friends, email is a fucking curse. I tell you this with full knowledge of the irony that I'm pecking into an email client at this very moment. Still, I believe it. From now on I'm treating email like smoke, like a ghost, like an ephemeris. Good or bad, it's sure to disappear in a blink.

» Email makes me feel this way every time I try and say anything important or meaningful -- for which it's even worse than the phone. It's less fleeting than speech, however. But agonizingly remote.
