Everything I know I learned from the Internet

The Internet has taught me a lot of things. How to hack together a blog, how to compare myself to people I have no business comparing myself with, how to assume a larger circle of friends due to chance Twitter meetings, how to confound the people I love with silly memes, how to convince myself I’m relevant, etc.

And outside of the self-deprecating stuff, it’s taught me a lot about design, photography, the book industry and the inside lives of Sioux Falls’ top web designers and marketing people.

But it all seems to have led up to this.

Because I just used the Internet to fix my garbage disposal.
