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.
