annual report on the state of Nicholas Felton.To think a little further here: what we are doing is turning the mind's black box inside out and remixing it with the world. We are learning how to quantify what we do on a digital palette. For example, my blog has become more of a "stream of web consciousness" than a place to post. I still do both there, but now I am more interested in the clutter that has arisen in there from my social bookmarks, my twitter, my various shared feeds.
