Sorry for the Silence

I haven’t gotten a chance to post anything recently because I’ve been in the process of moving. There is certainly nothing more disruptive in life than packing everything tangible you own in the entire world, moving it on one of the hottest days of the summer, and then reconstructing your entire home from scratch. The only exception is probably having a baby. At least moving only affects you for a week or so, as opposed to anywhere between 18 and 21 years.

Anyway, I’m somewhat settled at this point. Just waiting for my DSL to be activated. I forgot you could actually use phone lines to dial into a network, however now I remember why I stopped doing it.

  1. I hate moving. I think it is particularly hard on people who like order… that period of disruption. And as for dialup, that’s another brand of digital divide. THe stats that show x percent of households have broadband only show part of the story, because with broadband you use the internet in such a different way. If 30 percent of internet uers have broadband, perhaps they account for 80, 90 or even 95 percent of the activity online!

  2. I take it you moved to the Bay Area? Welcome to California! :)When my wife and I moved, we had cable installed before we physically moved in and the very first thing we set up was the home network – before we unpacked anything else!

    I just don’t like moving, either. It means going through the flotsjam and making hard decisions about whether to throw away this scrap of paper or not. And thanks, Sean, about the tip on getting cable installed first. Will keep that in mind for our next home (which knocking on wood will be built on a nice plot of land, if we can find one affordable enough, in 5 years or so).
