TiVo totally changes the way I'm watching the Olympics. I can boop on through sports or commentary that I don't want to watch to get to the good stuff. I can get coverage of events that are airing while I'm asleep or at work. I can pause anywhere I want -- TiVo is a synchronized diving team's greatest tool and nightmare.

One downside of Olympic week is that I'm really falling behind on my reading. My book queue is getting longer and longer. I'm still working my way through The Design of Everyday Things, which has reinforced my belief that usability is essentially applied cognitive science. I have another usability book ready to go behind it (The Inmates Are Running the Asylum), plus the DFW stories, plus Harper's and a ton of other little things.

I'm finding myself missing the pornography of time again.
