You Are Not a Gadget“You have to be somebody before you can share yourself.”

I read this book right after it came out. Its argument that software and hardware design require thinking in terms of individuals and their humanity is very compelling. I also liked his suggestion that people thinking of posting something to the internet should post something it took 100 times longer to create than it takes to watch.

The card file contains the segments I highlighted on my kindle (may it melt in the sun and die) and that I have now pulled off the amazon web site. For now they don’t really make a lot of sense.

Find the card file here.

**Update** The blog apocalypse of a couple years ago deleted all my linked card files. So this link is dead end. Naturally, my notes and highlights appear to be gone on Amazon too. So there’s no getting them back.
