Too Long Didn’t Read
At least twice–maybe three times in one day last week–I ran across the cryptic tl;dr. I had to look it up.
I thought: I can use that. In the age of text-fragments, video-bits and sound-bytes the internet browser’s attention span continues to shrink. Essays longer than 140 characters need not apply. tl;drÂ Too long. Didn’t read.
So I’m thinking that I’ll set aside for now the notion of blogging a complete expression towards any larger point. This shouldÂ especially easy this time of year when it starts to seem like molecular motion has ceased altogether, during the dull photo-lull when an image is not worth a thousand (or even 300) words.
Expect more short posts here, perhaps more than one some days. And maybe someday, a venue for longer posts in a sidecar cubby will appear in or near Fragments.
So while I muddle over those longer thoughts, a few links–practical, aural and visual–from the web inbox:
