The uninitiated, reading this post first in a sequence of postings might fail to note that it is actually the most recent in a set of ever more meaningless items. The reverse chronological nature of blog publication obscures the onset of insanity and argues for the reverse. If you are presented with this page and read down in a conventional manner, you might think things are becoming more normal. You would be wrong of course. Things will never be normal again.

If word processing made us into unwilling typesetters, the World Wide Web and all its multifarious attachments have transformed us into some high-tech analog of the traveling vacuum cleaner salesperson. We are all selling to each other, constantly. Encouraging our mutually pointless traffic back and forth across a digital landscape more frightening than those that cradle Dali's melting watches, cluttered with flotsam-and-jetsam pitches, late breaking scoops on matters we could give a shit about, superfluous weather reports for people who no longer go outside, and ads for articles of increasingly unnecessary clothing.
