Vincent Horn at Numinous Nonsense says that if you had to summarize his meditation practice in one word, it would be “ordinary.” I might summarize my practice as “mobile,” which is a generous way of saying that I haven’t made the time to sit in months. With school finishing in four weeks, though, I’m in the process of giving my life a hard reboot.

I’m making some changes to my online presence in preparation for my job search. I plan to update Never Sleep much more frequently, and you’ll notice a slight change in direction: away from politics (which are still very important to me) and towards emergent technology and productivity.

The most important part of this Reboot Project is coming back to my practice with a beginner’s mind. From there I can rebuild fresh.
