May 30, 2000: I just got back from a week in Hawaii, which was very relaxing, thanks for asking! I went on four dives and it occurred to me--as it does every time I dive--that SCUBA allows me to cross an interface, to inhabit both realms. Thankfully, its own interface is extremely transparent (open a valve, stick the regulator in your mouth and you can breathe). It reminds me of William Gibson's depiction of jacking in and being able to interact with data constructs spatially.. diving in data.
