I’m off to 6 days out somewhere in Texas at Burning Flipside. It’s my 12th time attending, and I’m looking forward to letting go for a long weekend. As I said on my Firedoglake Watercooler post last night, I don’t think I’ve really taken a break since I started Occupying in November. The nature of being the Twitter magnet is that it’s kind of a nonstop role — tweeting for the occupation happens every day, even when there’s not much going on and we no longer have a 24/7 camp. I’m slowly automating some aspects of the role, and finding secure ways to get more people on board (Hootsuite’s mobile support is a big disappointment this week).
No matter how I delegate, there’s still stuff for me to do most every day.
But not now, I won’t even have reliable mobile data access for the next 6 days. I’m not going to the wilderness, but to a beautiful pecan grove with a few thousand of my closest friends. It’s time to rewind in a Freaky Deeky Time Machine.
