I just accidentally left the house without my iPhone or iPad.

It was the most terrible hour and a half of my life, and I couldn’t even tweet about it. Nor was I able to programmatically report my whereabouts using the API of a web server. Barbaric.

No internet. No Google. If I didn’t know some fact …. I just didn’t know it. I had to remember things inside my own brain. Savagery I tell you.

At one point I considered buying a piece of wood with a sliver of graphite to record my thoughts by scraping the graphite against a piece of material made from wood pulp.

If hadn’t gotten home when we did, cannibalism & human sacrifice were only a small step away.
