I was going through my instapaper queue and instead of just reading things I hadn’t read yet, I went back to revisit things I had already read again, and appreciated the second reading. This led to the thought that it would be great to print a book of my favorite articles from 2012 to have a physical copy.
The idea of a book reminded me of when I was a kid and would pour over video game and computer magazines, reading and re-reading them until they had little more to give and waiting for the next issue in the following month. This stands in contrast to how I consume information now where it’s become about clearing a queue and giving things a second look is a rare occurrence. Having something tangible and orders of magnitude more costly than a list of links leading to an array of pixels on the screen is one way I’d like to try to balance out how I’m taking in things in 2013.
The concluding thought in this sequence is that It would be great to see what other people found worth revisiting again from the past year. If you’re interested in sharing and seeing what others have shared, drop me a note. Looking to have this printed by late January.
Happy new year, and see you in 2013!
