Travel Back in Time

If you didn’t read The New Rules for Highly Evolved Humans in the August 2009 issue of Wired, than you are probably screwing up your life on a daily basis. I’m not saying that all the rules should be followed to a tee, in fact, some of the rules I object to entirely. They are all worth a read though, just to get a glimpse of what Wired writers believe to be mandatory etiquette. I am in particular favor of the following:
• If you bought it, you can rip it.
• Ignore your ex on Facebook
• Rotate your photos before you upload them.
• Balance your media diet (although I disagree that Facebook should get more time than video games. That’s just absurd.)
• Turn off “Sent from my iPhone” signature (should be done as soon as you open the box.)
• Dont type BRB, just go and come back.
• Avoid looking at other people’s screens.
• Hide your speaker wire (I’m trying, but it’s tough with a rental with hardwood floors.)
• Don’t work all the time, you’ll live to regret it.
• Wearing headphones means do not disturb.
And most importantly:
• Sometimes you have to break the rules.
These are just my favorites. You can see all the rules here.
