2. A story from today's New York Times suggesting that foward-looking baby strollers may not be best for a child's development, since it radically diminishes face-to-face contact between babies and their mothers, fathers and care-givers.
3. A throw-away line from an article I wrote about George Orwell's newspeak in 1983 which, unprompted, migrated (at last count) to over 1300 websites: "The danger from computers is not that they will eventually get as smart as men, but we will meanwhile agree to meet them halfway."
Extra credit: Might one non-acute symptom be the inability to envision an approving smile while trying to decide what to wear?
Disclaimer: I know I could not have known about 1300 websites without meeting Google halfway, so don't bother rubbing it in. I also should have written "people" instead of "men," but I meant "mankind" (which I hope does not only dig the hole deeper).
