A wise (if fictional) gentleman once warned me that it’s a very dangerous business, going out your door; if you don’t keep your feet, you don’t know where you might be swept off to.
It is a dangerous business of another sort to open one’s web browser: if you don’t keep your head, you may find yourself blundering into a political discussion on social media, or perhaps attempting to check the weather but ending up reading the Wikipedia article about the Soviet Fur Mafia, or maybe Amazon Priming an urgent shipment of a new translation of War and Peace because maybe a fresh voice will give you the stamina to finish the whole thing? You may even (oh, the horror) find yourself composing your very first blog post.
But just once in a while you might find yourself engaging with real people via this airy medium. Welcome to the conversation, folks.
