Simple explanation: it is no more up to me whether I quit than it is to continue. Erasing the sites and announcing my disappearance is just the flip side of the same coin to that of my compulsive creativity. Extremes of behavior sustain one another. Also self-erasure can be slightly pathological (Carlos was obsessed with it).
For now, I will just say that I may never post or podcast again. But then again, I may. It's not up to me, so I am content just to say, who knows?
If not, then consider these various sites exquisite corpses.
In passing, I found an interesting definition yesterday in Doug Coupland's dictionary of the near future:
DESELFING Willingly diluting one’s sense of self and ego by plastering the Internet with as much information as possible. (See also Omniscience Fatigue; Undeselfing)Consider me de-selfed.
Adieu or au revoir to all my faithful readers.
