Re: “Mouse Potato”

An e-mail:

I’ve always preferred to call myself a mouse jockey. You’re right,

mouse potato sounds much, much too passive. Mouse jockeys, like

regular jockeys, have to learn how to navigate around obstacles when it

gets crowded and tight (think political blogs on election night). Plus,

like horseracing, speed is the crucial element. The technology trinity

of man, mouse, and high speed access all work together. If it all

clicks, I win by getting in. If my DSL is slower than your cable access

then I’m staring at overloaded server messages while you’re reading to

your heart’s content.
