Morning: Catching up on my poor inbox and doing some reading. Remember when it was thought that email might actually bring us closer together instead of inspire a kind of nagging neurosis about all that piles up while we are "away" leading lives, experiencing time together, practicing, writing, recording, and inventing stuff?
Emailienation = email + alienation = the shutdown that occurs when we become overwhelmed by an intimidating backlog of communications, esp. email.

On a lighter note, please check out the most exciting music+animation I've seen in a long long time. I found it linked from Robert Scoble's blog this morning. V. inspiring. Now, imagine instead of every song simply requiring a it's own 'songtile' so it has a unique (static) identity in your player and library,... what if every song also required a corresponding animation such as this? With this excellent animation, the bar has just been raised.
