I have a very wise friend who lives in in a mcmansion located a stone’s throw from from Henry David Thoreau’s little cabin. Despite this ironic fact, my friend is closer in spirit to the famous engineer, pencil magnate, and philosopher, as he often scoffed at my blogging and social network participation.
As an explanation on why I don’t blog much, here’s what Henry David Thoreau thought about twitter and the rest:
“My life has been the poem I would have writ,
But I could not both live and utter it.”
