I came across a huge stockpile of old LARP related data on my computer (and subsequently my Blackberry). Old emails about SI & KG along with tons of personal notes for various characters. It was kind of nostalgic seeing those bizarre theories, proposed inventions, diagrams, stories and treatises. Many were worth a good chuckle (for how right or how wrong they were). Others I regretted never having gotten around to, after all who wouldn’t want to build their own steam powered bicycle or LARP-safe rail gun? In the end, however, its all just disk space so I cleared it out and made room for new pursuits. Overcoming the urge to be a physical pack rat is in some ways easier and in other ways harder than being a virtual one. While the “delete” key is less effort than the garbage bag, virtual clutter has a way of hiding out better and seeming less intrusive.
