It came to me in the shower

by Suw on July 28, 2004

I wish I had a waterproof computer and wifi in the bathroom. I seem to get lots of ideas whilst in the bath or shower which often cut short said ablutions so that I can go and write stuff down before I forget it. Maybe I need some sort of voice-activated dictation machine. Or an amanuensis.

Admit it, what you really want is a blogging/IRC implant, despite everyone knowing the dangers of becoming too involved in the digital world – see Tron for details (of course, in a few years time it won't be the MCP – Master Control Program – trying to take over the world, it'll be the SUW – Super… Unifying… err… Whatchamahoosie).

I keep a paper notebook and a pencil in my bathroom to be able to scribble down ideas I get under the shower.
A researcher from Israel once told me about a technology research centre (I think in Sweden) where they had a sort of whiteboard in the shower to which you could write with waterproof markers (I think it could be erased by scrubbing). That would be something for me too.

A blogging/IRC implant? Heaven!! Where can I get one?

Of course, you could go low-tech and hire a stenographer to sit in the shower with you. I'm sure the awkwardness would reside a few days after doing it. 🙂

Whiteboard is an idea. Paper would get all soggy though. Paper mache is hard to write on. 😉
