Why you should really start doing more things alone.

Every time I've done something alone that I usually would do with friends or family, I've had a blast. 

Except once, when I ate dinner at Chili's by myself. The waitress seemed somehow bothered by the fact that I was eating alone. Like she didn't know how to deal with me.

Just read an interesting article about how the kids in Glee engage in all kinds of behavior that violates copyright, and how that show is being brought to us by one of the mainstream media networks that tries to curb such behavior.

So, Fox, is it cool to mash-up pop music in violation of copyright or not? Because you're giving us mixed messages here.

Had to post this because in the first paragraphs he admits to two introverted behaviors that I have recently engaged in (plus I think I might still have that issue of the Atlantic):

1) Deleting his Facebook account

2) Playing with his cell phone to avoid social interaction.

I've often wondered at what point introversion crosses over into asocial.

I know, it's been a long time.

I quit Facebook recently. I wasn't really using it all that much, and with all the recent privacy concerns I just decided to shut it down.

If you, on the other hand, want to keep using Facebook and you value your privacy, then check out ReclaimPrivacy.org.

You drag that little "Scan for Privacy" link up to your bookmarks, log into Facebook, and then click on it, and it tells you your weaknesses, privacy-wise.

Kottke has assembled a bunch of end-of-decade best-of lists. This will take some time to get through.

My demographic has the second-lowest unemployment rate. Women of my age, race, and education are slightly more employed.
