It?s a few days before Christmas, ten days before the end of 2010, and there?s the wonderful sense of deceleration as I flip through my browser tabs. The blizzard of email has slowed to a few, scant flakes, the roaring river of Twitter updates is a trickle. There?s time to read, and evidently, time to reflect and write at more length.
