The only thing I can recall about my tour of NYU was that the admissions center had iMacs. I don’t remember anything about the tour itself or the buildings or the meal plans or the dorms, but I sure do remember seeing those shiny kiosks seducing me to check my email. The keys were so perky.
Since then they’ve been replaced with new iMacs, but I still walk by the admissions center and stare at them, remember how I once believed they stood for innovation, the cutting edge of academia. Eh, a boy can dream.
It has been an absolute pleasure geeking out for all of you; thank you for letting me tell you why your digital lives are broken and how to fix them. Thank you for leaving nasty comments about why you still think Microsoft Word is the ultimate app (it’s not) and for all the PR spam about that one thing that I missed in my roundup.
