Light Blogging and Stuff

I wish I could claim that Twitter is eating my blogging energy but truth be told I haven’t even been twittering much this weekend. I believe I’m going through one of those periods of burnout with the process. I have so many irons in the fire that I’m beginning to thrash around. This is where I need to settle down, get a little zen and trust in GTD or a GTD-like process to guide me. Anything else and I’m doomed.

Over the last week I’ve been getting used to Mac OS X 10.4. I believe I’ve settled in to a good 2-4 year delay behind everyone else. I see people talking about buying iPhones or iPod Touches and then being disappointed that the price drops and/or new models coming out with much more capacity for the same price. I, on the other hand, have been getting devices and OS upgrades that are lagging so far behind other people that they just give them to me. On the one hand it makes me feel a little bit like a cheeser for begging other people’s refuse technology. On the other, I like getting work done with older technology and it feels green to me to extend the useful life of these items.

Somewhere in here I’ll find a new equilibrium for my blogging, tweeting and all the other stuff of my digital life. I try not to get freaked out when things change a little one way or the other. Nothing is permanent, all things are in flux.

    LOL…you crack me up, dude! I hear ya on the thrash feeling…I mentioned that to another buddy of mine just a hour or so ago. I also have too many irons in the fire.

    Oh, and btw…I just listened to 12/24 podcast; thanks for the shout-out! And rest assured…that Zune wasn’t paid for by ME in any conference fees! *grin* Ken don’t play that. I’m not as frugal as geniodiabolico, but I try. That was an invite-only BigCo special Microsoft technology demo conference thingie, so no (direct) payment at all. Zunes for everybody! (Of course, MS takes it out of our hide eventually. No question about that!)
