as a small child i was captivated by gordon lightfoot's lyrics... what a great idea - if you could read my mind. as a small child i assumed everyone would, of course, want to read my mind - filled with wild dreams and hopes and recipes for disaster (seemed like a good idea at the time). my whole life i've been wondering why no one could read my mind... how hard could it be? why must i spell out the details of every thought - every concept? then came social networking, like this blog , twitter and facebook... social networking does make it easier for all my friends and followers to know my every thought and feeling, sometimes ad nauseum. it's a good start, but just so much darn work and so much darn time.
but now the future is here: you may not be able to read my mind but a computer can! the university of wisconsin has developed a mind reading computer that can twitter for me!!! now my every thought, dream and hope can instantly be broadcast to all my friends and followers! oh joy! AND I DON'T EVEN HAVE TO LIFT A FINGER. thank you university of wisconsin, you truly have read my mind. now if there was just a way to broadcast the images trapped up there swilling around.... hmmm. maybe next week.
