If I were to be an animal, I wish to be as handsome as Starleigh’s two year old cat, Hazel
Of late I’ve realize that personal, as well as long forgotten parts of my life, have increasingly seeped into this blog. None so truer than to see that this week alone, an ex-girlfriend found me here, and my parents (via Skype) started asking whether I blog too much. I see blogging simply as a daily routine like brushing one’s teeth, but instead of teeth, you’re brushing your mind of “useful thoughts” and keeping them for posterity online before they decay into nothingness. In other words, this blog is my surrogate brain, backing up my life so I can almost “live on” forever. While I’d love to share everything about my life here, I can’t and I won’t.
So for now, I offer you a sneak peek at life uncensored and uncut, by sharing with you an accumulation of drafts that never saw the light of day. Some of the stuff I’ve written ended up meandering into nothingness, while others just aren’t timely anymore. Before I delete all the invalid, unpublished works, I’m going to list their titles. Here on, I present thee a glimmer of reality:
Your Drafts: Advertising in Video Games, Why A.I. can’t fight wars for us (yet!), Shout if you’re reading this blog!, How to Map Everything You Think (Free eBook), Mass Exodus in World of Warcraft, Hyperdistribution // The case of Internet as the new TV, How to blog effectively without thinking…, Reflections on Semantic Network Analysis, How RSS spells Death to Online Serendipity, Video: Days of Frontallabs, Being Personal, TagCloud for your blog, Distributed Creativity, Introducing Singaporean bloggers on Frappr Map, Singapore’s open checkbook for top scientists, Singaporean Faculty at US universities, Which Monty Python character are you?, What kind of humanist are you?, Today’s Links: Digg variations, Ten Online Apps for the Travelling Geek, How to game Digg.com for fame (and maybe fortune), Today’s Links, Deconstructing Catherine’s “Managing Political Dissent”, Synergy, Today’s Links, Today’s Links, Return of the Spam Bot
How is this useful?
Sure, it could be ugly, but perhaps the purpose of this exercise would be to offer a backchannel into how we think. I hope this inspires you to share your unpublished drafts as well. If you do, drop me a comment about it.
