Weird proverbs for a digital age



The things that pour out of my brain at 3am:

  • Yesterday’s blog is like yesterday’s newspaper, only you can’t wrap fish bones in it.  Paper yellows and fades, but digital words evaporate into a cloud.
  • Clouds pour rain and disappear.  The cloud with your information in it doesn’t give you the benefit of rain, it sends every drop of data you’ve ever written to a digital reservoir in Utah.
  • The only certainty is death. That is true of creatures as well as computers.  When preparing for the inevitable, save often and well.

Amazing!  Another insight discovered:  Proverbs make me sleepy.
