Balancing act

blackberrybustedI hate Blackberrys*. Even before the banks got us into the terrible mess we’re in, while firms banged on about work-life balance they were also kind of hoping we would all overlook the fact that the laptop and Blackberry they routinely gave us instantly eroded any distinction between the two we may once have enjoyed. Doubtless the work-life ideal will flap around like a dying fish on the banks of our stream of consciousness for a while yet but I hope it’s on its way out.

* Especially the way they force you to worry about how to form plurals. See also: mouses

    I saw it. You know I chucked my Blackberry away yonks back. Have a go at me for being fat instead.

    Blogging will only be the new awag when it’s not as funny as it used to be.

    Really? My residual image of you is ‘always on the gizmo.’ Perhaps you should get it back: it might restore order to your life.
