Introduction to Great Design (First Draft)

Confession: I'm afraid to turn off my cell phone.

Not because I'm afraid of being out of touch, mind you. Heck, I could care less if people can reach me. If you have something to tell me that's so important it would be worth interrupting Will and Grace, well, I think I'd rather have another 45 minutes of ignorant bliss before I find out about it. That's my motto: Will and Grace First, Earthquakes and Floods Later.

Here's why I'm afraid to turn off my cell phone: because I can't always seem to muster the brain cells necessary to turn it back on.

It has two buttons on it, a happy green button and a scary red button. They have funny icons on them that don't mean very much to me.

You might think that the green button turns it on. Green means go, right?
