Yesterday’s two hours of school went off without a hitch. Today it’s a full day of school, and with Jon and Stephen also graciously going on vacation, I’m feeling full of possibilities, as long as those possibilities include a run to the grocery store. I’ve made great progress on the backlog of magazines. All that’s left? Last week’s New Yorker, and Blueprint. (Blueprint looks really good, by the way.) I still have to clean and organize the closet (no matter how many articles I read about getting rid of stuff, I still have unworn things hanging there, waiting for “someday”) and I must pare down my email inbox.Speaking of email, it seems there is a new email term out there, coined this past weekend at a PodCamp Web conference. “Bacn” is that email that isn’t spam (you’ve requested it), but you don’t necessarily need it. Yep, I’ve got a lot of bacn. And in the name of simplication, I’ve been trying to figure out which bacn I need, and which just shows up, only to be quickly deleted. Daily Candy is tasty, much needed Bacn. However, it’s goodbye to eBay and Bluefly’s daily updates. And there’s more work/unsubscribing to be done. Read Steve Johnson’s Chicago Tribune column about Bacn here, and stay tuned to see if the term catches on ….
