Here's a fantastic rant on the absurdity of our frenzied gadget culture. (links to Gizmodo)

But one of the highlights of my day is the 11:00 hour, when the Discovery Channel runs episodes of the show How It's Made.

I find it absolutely fascinating - not only to see how things get made - but also to look inside all of these different industries that we so often take for granted or don't think much about at all (at least I don't). And it's not just the industries that make these products, but you get a glimpse into some of the more basic foundations of the industries - there has to be someone to supply the equipment and raw materials, someone who does technical support and service, etc.

It gives me a greater appreciation for the things that I see and use every day.
