All the shiny products, or just a simple bar of soap?

How do you deal with competing desires to track and have things, histories, libraries (bookmarks, favorites, notes, saved emails, filled-up calendars, etc) and yet also be unattached and minimalist (get rid of things, be unhindered, untraceable, simple and de-cluttered)? [more inside]

A permanent condition goes away. What's next?

After twenty years of twice-weekly migraines, Topamax has halted them completely for me; nary even a minor headache in three months. People with narcolepsy (and others with less severe sleep issues) have found a wonder drug in Provigil. Severe snorers, suffering from sleep apnea, arise from sleep studies on CPAP wondering what this strange "awake" feeling is. Cataracts disappear and vision returns. And then there's that other drug, so beloved by spammers.
