Douglas Coupland on ending Zoom calls

I’ve been Zooming a lot this year, like everyone else, and I always end my calls by closing the lid of my laptop. Maybe that’s all death is: the laptop closing, nothing cosmic, just a gentle click as we stop using our app. link

I love this. It's like putting a landline handset down on or snapping a flip phone shut.

re/starting a blog

Whenever I stumble upon a personal blog with years of archives and I feel a wave of jealously. I wish I'd committed to my false-start blogs in 2005, 2010 and 2015. I can't help but look at others' entry dates spanning back in time, sometimes measured in decades and think that it's too late. It feels pointless to commit to a personal blog in 2021.

But what's stopping me? I hope to still be around in a decade and more. If I can't go back and start in 2010 why not start now?
