- Never read the comments section.
- Treat Facebook and Twitter like a phone call, not a television.
- Do not flip out when a free website changes its terms of service. They’re allowed to do it; you’re allowed to stop using the website.
- Support web artists whose work you value with purchases, not just pageviews.
- Stop freeloading and donate to news outlets and service organizations whose missions you value.
- Remember that sharing a link is neither a vote nor a donation.
- Use Facebook only for conversation and link sharing, never as the platform for created content.
- Stop reading articles with titles that begin “Top 15…” or “8 Best…” etc.
- Continue to not use emoticons anywhere, in any fashion.
- Apply a high standard of relevance and interest before attempting to tell someone about a video or comic you saw online.
- Tweet like your girlfriend, ex-girlfriend, future employer, and favorite aunt are all reading it.
- Make sure your blog post is important before going back to edit it after it’s ben publishedd.

January 7, 2010: sort long-troublesome kitchen Tupperware drawers, figure out which lids go with which bottoms, throw out a tremendous amount of crap.
I think I’m all set on good deeds to help my housemates until, oh, July.
