Notice: Going Physical

June 24, 2005

That’s right.  No more emails.  No more IM conversations.  I hate computers and I’m done with them.  After I get these software projects done, I’m done with computers.  I’m never going to touch them again.  If you want to contact me, you’ll have to phone or Fax me.  I want to hear you with my ears and touch things I’m sent with my hands!  PHYSICAL documents!

It’s like a nightmare.  Now cell phone practically have their own operating systems.  I think some cells run a light version of Windows CE.  No way, now they’re going to screw that world up too.  Phones are going to be locking up, and getting spyware and viruses.  Get spam text messages.  Whatever happened to classic land-line analog phones.  That’s what I’m talking about.  How often do you see those breaking or locking up?  Charge per minute.  Real people at the other end.

As a programmer I’ve spent enough time on this computer for 10 lifetimes and even if paper notes and research is less ‘effecient’, I don’t care.  No more headaches and red-eyes.  No more legs cramped from sitting in this chair too long!  I’m going to write with my hands!  Yes, doodle in margins, hand-draw charts!  Hand-written research papers.  I’m going all out here.  I’m not typing, and I’ll tell you what, if you can’t read it, I DON’T CARE.

But Jason, you can fit that entire Library on a single DVD!  I don’t care!  I’m going to have PHYSICAL books and read them on a nice non-computer recliner kicked back.  I’m going to have books scattered everywhere with physical papers and file cabinets full of stuff!  YES! I don’t care if it’s slow to search.  What am I in such a rush for?

I have a dream.  A dream where there’s no computers.  No video games.  No internet.  People physically conversed and actually got out of the house.  Blockbuster was obliterated and people actually played basketball the Rec center.  Whatever happened to high quality pickup games? Whatever happened to Football, Baseball, and kids on bikes riding outside!?

I’ve been dreaming of it for a good 6 months now, but I’m finally going to strive to get out of it.  No more software development and no more computers.  No more technology.  People think this technology is so great but I’ll tell you all it is giving up 3 of your 5 senses for ‘speed’ in communication.  No More!  It’s parks and fresh-air for me.

Today has mainly been studying Borland ECO internals and in-depth (yeah programming!) .  I’m getting a little computer tired so I don’t think this journal entry is going to be too long.

I’ve been reading a PHYSICAL book: John Locke’s the Reasonableness of Christianity.  I think it’s THE best book as far as explaining things.  I need to write a big entry of all I’ve learned from it.  Though right now, I’d rather get back to reading! 🙂

I still haven’t got any sort of vehicle.  I’ve also been riding my motorcycle a lot lately.  It’s been a lot of fun.

Oh, I finally got to watch the rest of the David Icke DVD set.  Definetely about as ‘out there’ as you can get.  I enjoyed it a lot.  That’s some crazy stuff.
