Today's hike

2005-02-27 23:29:42.564437+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

I guess it's Oscartm night or somesuch, but the extent of my homage to that is sitting here listening to the soundtrack from The Incredibles[Wiki](which is, indeed, incredible). Got a bunch of disconnected thoughts from today's hike, these ramblings are for entertainment purposes only.

One of the things I've been pondering recently has been "podcasting". I've been back and forth between Windows[Wiki] and Linux[Wiki] recently, and therefore haven't had the machine I'm at booted long enough to listen to shows. The only one I've missed has been Brainwagon. Surprisingly, I haven't even really missed Coverville.

As I watched the tendrils of mist crawl up the mountains and thought about the songbirds from yesterday, I thought about the "sound seeing" segments some people have been doing, and thought "well, I should just carry the video camera", and I realized that the audio format removes much of what we gained with hypertext. I read a bunch of weblogs, and skim a bunch of email, but if I had to deal with, say, mailing lists where I had to read everyone's input sequentially, or book length tomes from many of the people whose output I enjoy in small snippets, I wouldn't bother.

The hike itself was along Bolinas Ridge, a mile and a half of steep climbing, and seven and a half of a long meander through redwoods and across meadows, with the first hints of the flowers of spring peeking out. The overcast was heavy, only saw shadows once, but the rain held off until we hit Olema, where we piled into my car and headed up to Point Reyes Station for lunch at the Station House (with the divine desserts). A late day, but a rather nice break.

Sweet hike! Marin must be extremely lush, these days ... You keep reminding me how much I actually miss it.
