Apparently the kids can’t be stopped. Twitter was built upon, and continues to grow “on the simple concept of …What are you doing—right now? What are your friends doing—right now?”
 
Right now? Why ‘right now’? There’s something—not desperate (because it’s beyond that), not trivial (because it’s less meaningful than triviality), not even childish (because it’s not that complicated)—-but spooky about the desire to reach out and tell everybody (anybody for that matter) what you are doing right now. Right now I’m typing. Right now, I’ve paused to think. I have no idea why this bothers me so much, right now. Right now I’m still thinking. Right now I’m wondering why ANYONE would care to track what I’m doing right now. (It’s a little weird that anyone should even pretend to care.)  I certainly don’t give a good goddamn (as my granddad used to say) what others are doing right now. It’s none of my business. Do whatever the hell you want right now, leave me out of it…right now.
In fact, leave me out of it later too.
 
Most of the kids right now are probably wishing that others would shut up about what they are doing right now so that they could say what they are up to right now.

BOOK ONE
THE MILIEU
 
If Book One is anything it is a lamentation.
 
It is not a lamentation of the now-lost, possibly valuable, flippantly unexplored, carelessly ignored, nearly forgotten  past (both recent as well as ancient), but of the ever-emerging, future-now-present-(don’t blink)-now-past and the ever-expanding, never-ending, black-hole dumping ground of personal opinion within which that ever-emerging, ever-collapsing, present/past exists. At no time in the history of man have so many people been so desperate to have their personal value recognized by others. Here’s news though: All of this shamelessly self-centered communication among thousands who have never met (and have no intention) is not communication at all.

The DAY DONNIE WAS ON FIRE So, we were just sitting around in Donnie's brother's car, doin' a little weed and I looked up and happened to notice that Donnie was on fire. I mean there were flames and everything, man. No smoke though. Just flames and everything. So, I nudged Vince and he looked ...

“Where is the knowledge that is lost in information? Where is the wisdom that is lost in knowledge?” T. S. Eliot asked that. Of course—each trapped within their own peculiar and particular wealth of knowledge—the kids all ask, “Who is T. S. Eliot?” And how do you even begin to fight a thing like that? Meanwhile, if there is a rap artist out there named Wuz-Is, I don’t know anything about him, and I honestly feel that I can lead a full and happy life without that knowledge. I assume Wuz-Is is doing OK without knowing anything at all about me. So, as far as that goes, mutually assured ignorance is bliss.

I am doing my best to restrain my enthusiasm for this tune, 'cause, honestly, I think those are MY sunglasses, man. And it really kinda grinds my goose to see you wearin'  'em in your video like that. Now, I'm lookin' around the room and wonderin' what else you got that's mine.... Oh, wait...just found the sunglasses....they were in the freezer.

For example, who the hell is Rick Warren, and what's he doing on MY google-plus-whatever? First thing I'd like to do is to learn how to clear out all the dead wood, like that guy.
