I'm back, sort of

2002-07-26 03:40:08+00 by ebradway 1 comments

Many of you may have noticed a recent jump in my postings. A little while back I was contemplating leaving cyberspace altogether. After a good eight months of not checking email every day, not having a running desktop (or a desk for that matter), I seem to be re-entering cyberspace. This time I'm a student and a geek in a GIS Lab. But the direction I'm going in (cartography), hopefully, will take me futher away from computers. What I'm hoping to do is remove myself from the computers-for-computers-sake world and just use the damned things as tools. Despite the fact that cartography is a heavily computerized field, there is still significant field work that goes on. Hopefully, I'll be able to steer myself in that direction...

The people with the skills get burned out with CyberSpace. Flutterby is about my only non-business related forays into CyberSpace. Eric, computers are not really the end themselves, they are a means to an end. I hope you find a direction that you enjoy, uses your incredible skills well, and allows a lifestyle you can sustainably enjoy.
