Knowing and the Web


xkcd lends some insight

Is posting on the Internet when you should be sleeping a Web norm? A comment on the talk page for the Shakespeare’s Sonnets Wikipedia entry (“I posted my comment when I should have been sleeping.”) reminded me of the banner on Rageboy’s EGR blog (“where we write at night when we should be sleeping. and it shows.”).

    I’d say it is. In fact, I think many people who say things on the Web should stop and take a nap before they do so. It’s amazing how much clarity and perspective one can attain from a short nap. In fact, during one particularly productive day at my job prior to law school, I founded a group to promote daily napping – the Young Advocates for Worldwide Napping (YAWN). Admittedly, the link to Internet posting was not directly contemplated, but perhaps I should revise the mission statement.

    Who has time to nap when there’s an entire Internet to read and hastily comment on?!
