Driving is great for thinking

Monday, August 6, 2007 by Dave Winer.

A picture named beamer.gifI'm driving from the Bay Area to Seattle for multiple purposes. Permalink to this paragraph

1. It's been a long time since I took a road trip. Last one was in the summer of 2005, almost two years ago.  Permalink to this paragraph

2. I have a new car, and while it's fun to get to know it by driving around the Bay Area, there's nothing like taking it for an extended test drive.  Permalink to this paragraph

3. The weather is fantastic in the northwestern US this time of year. While I've done the drive from Seattle to the Bay Area a few times, it's never been in such good weather. It's warm and clear. I'm seeing things that never made it through the fog and rain on previous trips. Permalink to this paragraph

4. I get great thinking done on these trips and come up with good ideas. More on that later. Permalink to this paragraph

5. It's allowed me to get completely caught up with Fresh Air podcasts. More on that too. Permalink to this paragraph
