I think I've become a misanthrope. My responses to everything these days: 1. Who cares? 2. So? 3. Oh. 4. I don't care. 5. That's nice.

"The ultimate April Fools' joke was to launch something kind of crazy on April 1st and have it still exist on April 2nd." -- on the launching of Gmail ten years ago today.
