Back in the early days of blogging it used to feel as if the internet was an extension of my neural networks. My blog posts would trigger responses which I would then react to. It was as if some synapses fired inside my skull, while others fired outside it. Cory Doctorow called this his outboard brain.
Well, nowadays it feels like I’ve had an aneurysm! The synapses outside my skull are malfunctioning. Some are dying off and others are overheating.
Maybe I need to step back from this synaptic dysfunction – meditation to calm my outboard brain. Maybe I need a frontal lobotomy.
