in tears, at my desk
once more, with feeling

qotd, we have the same kids

"We don't have a handheld GPS, but I remember what Jeremy Irish told me when I visited his office at Groundspeak: 'Geocaching is a trick to get kids to go outside. That was our original mantra.' I'd love to see Dylan out exploring the woods behind our house, following ants an dbuilding forts and damming streams on a sunny afternoon, but despite our best efforts, he's a true child of the 21st century: send him outside, and he'll just stand there for 20 minutes with his nose pressed against the sliding glass door, like the world's saddest garden gnome."

-- Ken Jennings, Maphead, which you ought to read if you were a kid like me who loooooooved maps. Still do, in fact.
