Stuff (seriously, it's an article about stuff).

Moving every four months was a great way to get rid of stuff just because moving all that stuff around was so hard and annoying. Now that I'm in a semi-permanent location though, I'm worried that I'll start accumulating too much stuff. I think it's already begun. Maybe I should force myself to throw out something for every new thing I acquire. Presumably this will force my set of stuff to, on average, improve.

By "stuff," do you mean actual, physical stuff and by "moving" do you mean going from one actual, physical place to another? Or are you referring to the fact that this is the third incarnation of your website that I've seen and you need to move everything from your collected jokes and DelayGames?

I was referring to physical stuff and physical moving. But you've got a good point about the website - that's also extra stuff that should probably be axed.

In that case, may I recommend Masamune Shirow's cyberpunk graphic fiction work <i>Ghost In The Shell</i> and its compilation sequels, <i>Human-Error Processor</i> and <i>Man-Machine Interface</i>. One of the issues it brings up is how electronic memory might be a commodity in the future and why we need to lessen our electronic stuff, particularly image and audio files.

The movie adaptations which diverge from the <i>manga</i> somewhat are excellent too.

Nice comment format, by the way. I'm actually posting separate comments to see how it works since the indentation seemed a bit unusual at first. I'm guessing it's based on an exponential equation?

I've seen Ghost in the Shell but not the other two. Most of the anime I've seen is by proxy anyhow - other people were watching it so I watched it too.

And yeah, the indent is an exponential curve. See this thread for a nice example.
