Gimme a Coffee Blogging Break

Let’s call a spade a spade.  I’ve been a bad blogger and my own attempts at self-reform have apparently failed miserably.  My lack of writing is not due to a lack of coffee consumption or travel.  I have a sizable backlog of posts, dating back well over a year, which include some pretty high-profile, much sought-out cafes and roasteries.  The fact is that I’m presently at some risk of getting crushed under the pile of photographs and notes that towers above me on my desk.

Life, however, has recently taken hold of my calender, leaving me with much less free time than I’d prefer.  It’s also thrown some real doozies my way, that still have me spinning.  I keep trying to talk with life.  I say, “Life, who’s in charge here.  Just cut me some slack.”  I’ve been finding that life just doesn’t want to listen.

The long and the short of it is that I need a little coffee-blogging sabbatical.  I need to take some time to regroup, recharge my batteries and avoid some blogging burn out.  Don’t worry, I don’t envision getting rid of this blog and I won’t be laying down the mantle of self-appointed guide for coffee tourists.  I have no plans to stop drinking coffee or to cease seeking it out when I travel.  I just may not be reporting regularly on what I find, at least not in my usual, long form.

During my temporary stand down, you’ll still be able to contact me via email and follow me on twitter.  In fact, if you’ve been paying attention to my whereabouts recently, my habits won’t change that much from what they’ve been (I haven’t been blogging anyway).  With that grand announcement finally off my chest, I bid you adieu.  I can’t wait to see you on the other side.

    The obvious ceuntor example is washing machines. To achieve greater efficiencies in use of water — something that is important in some parts of the country and less important in others — machines that get clothes as clean as the average machine did in the 1990s are now ‘high-end’ and cost far more. I have a well, sunk into a copious source of ground water. Why should my purchase of a washing machine be dictated by the needs of a Los Angelino?In that case the government made the decision that water conservation was more important than the performance of the washing machine as a washing machine. Even your example of the benefits of standardization of units is oversimplified. For example, it completely ignores how political interference has prevented the more widespread adoption of metric units in the US, at considerable cost to our economy (and resulting in the loss of at least one very expensive NASA space vehicle). When the government decides, ultimately politicians decide. Meanwhile, the electronics industry has quietly established uniform standards and protocols by market mechanisms and thankfully without much government interference.
