  1. Your final thought is a troubling one!

    I was recently thinking that our typical online experience appeals to the three parts of the soul as described by Plato: reason, spirit (roughly like the ego), and appetite. But it feeds them only the most meager of crumbs: disconnected bits of information, “likes,” and audiovisual pleasures on a little screen. We’re starving amidst an abundance of these crumbs.

    At least your blog is an exception. I’m still giving you the final word in my book.

    • My fear is probably in part a reflection of having just read Jane Jacobs’ “Dark Age Ahead.” I’m looking forward to your book, Richard, and I need it as a bright point in my reading list.
