I need a brain recorder. Not a notepad, or a voice-recognizing to-do list, or an iPhone app I can access anywhere, but a straight-up biodevice that hooks up to my brain and, when I realize I'm thinking a semi-coherent and somewhat interesting thought that needs a little more munching on, jots it down somewhere for me.
This summer, I've been exposed to more down time than I've ever been used to - part of it has been due to the necessary delays that come along with the joys of public transportation, some of it is from the copious amounts of walking I've been doing (to the grocery store, to and from work, to BART), and some of it is late at night after I get home. (Digression: that down time I'm not OK with - email me to hang out if you're free!) And in this down time (actually, often when I should be focusing on other things), little thought bubbles pop up around my head:
I wonder what the weather is like in Boston, and (when it's cold and windy here in SF) how much I actually appreciate seasons on the East Coast,
I wonder why there are so many people scattering so many elementary grammar and spelling mistakes in their emails ("Lot's"? Come on.),
I wonder about companies and focus and HR people and women (more blog posts along the way),
I wonder about relationships and priorities and what other people are doing this summer.
So somehow, in my mind and for this blog, I've been queuing up quite the list of things to think about and blog about. I haven't, however, found the impetus or time (because I'm thinking up too many other thoughts? :)) to actually do so. So here's a promise - there are interesting things to come.
Let me know what you think on Twitter.
