I appreciate that Microsoft and Google have taken steps to insure that I am who I say I am. I’m less thrilled that they want to insure that I am where I usually am. My ability to pull my mail to the desktop client is hit or miss when I use my portable wi-fi and near impossible when using my VPN, in spite of the VPN server location being in Japan. My passwords for both accounts are too complex to memorize, which means I have to take the added step of going into Keychain Access to find the password and then log onto the website(s).
Got a call earlier from Hler. He’s a guy I met while on exchange at Tsukuba and is a truly commendable human being. He’s that rarest of creatures: a student of philosophy whose life is a concrete expression of his convictions.
We’re gonna meet up tomorrow for the first time since 1998.
