my biggest accomplishment today was becoming invisible on LinkedIn. for some reason, i felt liberated, uplifted, fleet of foot, the full weight of non-anonymity lifted from my shoulders.
for some reason, LinkedIn feels creepier than Facebook. Maybe because Facebook is so flagrantly privacy violating, while LinkedIn is more covert, which makes it a better spy.
the other night, i had a dream that I was walking out of a museum, carrying either a Van Gogh or a Rembrandt under my arm. how it got there was a mystery to me. i know it was not my intent to steal, i don’t think. perhaps it was kind of like walking out of a department store with the sweater you just tried on, but forgot to return to the rack. i tried to explain this to the security person who stopped me on my way out. i woke up just as he was calling his supervisor.
