Eastern Star

On a flight reading Paul Theroux’s Ghost Train, a meditations on traveling and writing, and travel writing. The braying voice of an over-confident founder echoes around the too small spaces of the plane, pitching his social publishing platform to his seat mate; built on Rails in India, “we’re great for travel books, anything you can make a template for.”

I don’t think Paul would approve.

Clearly the economy is in a bad way.

What I can’t figure out is why I’m seeing a huge spike in employment inquiries (most totally ridiculous head hunter crap, and some really awesome “work on stuff that matters” style projects), the Web is full of the most innovative stuff I’ve seen in years, and everyoneiknowisdoingawesomeshit.

Some days its hard to stay pessimistic.
