Tuesday night, I had just finished dinner. Typically, my laptop is open across the table to check in with the news missed over the course of the day. At 9 p.m. PST, I typed in Wikipedia.org to see if their blackout had kicked in yet. And there it was—the first blackout of many over the next 12 hours. It’s weird, because, well… it was simple. That’s all it takes. It’s not the interface. It’s the action. The emotional ripple that streamlines from the stance alone awaits me.
I accidentally fell asleep with the lights on and laptop on my belly. From the moment I woke up on Wednesday, it was an intense sugar rush. Dozens of Firefox tabs were open, and click click click. URLs were entered, and there it all was.
