“If you were born before 1985, then you know what life is like both with the internet and without. You are making the pilgrimage from Before to After,” he writes. It is a nice conceit. Harris grew up in a very different world, one with limited channels of communication, fewer forms of entertainment, and less public scrutiny of quotidian actions or fleeting thoughts. It was neither better nor worse than the world we live in today. Like technology, it just was.

Being in this situation puts us in a privileged position.”If we’re the last people in history to know life before the internet, we are also the only ones who will ever speak, as it were, both languages. We are the only fluent translators of Before and After.”

Perhaps I am both?

Me: Diet Coke, please

Snack Cart Guy: That will be $2.25

Me: [Shocked, horrified, and offended] DIET PEPSI!!!! Ahhhhhhh, NO. No thank you.

A true lover of Diet Coke would NEVER accept anything less!

(I did end up getting ginger ale).

HAPPY FRIDAY YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!!!

The Strange Tale of the North Pond Hermit

This story is fascinating. The guys on my local Maine classic rock radio — WBLM — were talking about this guy yesterday when I was driving from Falmouth to Scarborough. I guess one of the things he had at his camp was a crank radio, and he liked to wax poetic about Lynyrd Skynyrd
