The medium is the message

I am composing this blog entry from my bed - because I can. I know what you're thinking - "Blogging in bed? That's the best he can do?" (And, clearly, the answer is "Yes".)

But the cool part is - I'm using my new iPad to do it (write the post, I mean). And before you think me a complete loser for dropping five bills on the latest gadget du jour, let me clarify. I'm using the new iPad I won in a drawing at a seminar I attended last week. Or to put it another way: I'm using my FREE iPad.

I would include a picture - but that would mean I'd have to get out of bed.

So I guess I'll just hit the Save button and get some sleep. (You'll notice that this new technology has not improved my ability to actually compose a satisfying post...)

Quality improvement is an issue for another day.

Take care.

And I must have been seriously out of it because I didn't hear a thing. Nice to see you posting, though. More, please?

And here I thought you were going to expound in a Marshall McCluhan-ny way.

Free is good. Very, very Good.

Being the winner in a drawing makes the free even more good-er.

UM: OK, technically I was laying on the couch. I'll see what I can do about increasing the blog output.

TL: I thought I was extremely McLuhan-ny. The medium (an iPad) was the message (my post).

Ellie: Free IS good. It just doesn't get any lesser than free. And winning is good-er. It's like that liquid luck stuff from Harry Potter.
