People comment on old content as though its producer still holds a position. Hell, they comment as though its producer still remembers the content.
This is especially true for those who themselves don't create content. There are many differences between content creators and consumers which make them understand and react to things quite differently.

To solidify its power, a planet-eater tracks down the only thing which could threaten it, the "matrix of power", a device passed down from the leaders of a race of alien robots.
This was a deeply-moving movie for me as a child, though this impression was only possible because I grew up watching the original series. Re-watching this as an adult, it didn't have anywhere near that impact.
Though I do still like it, I don't know that I can recommend it, not just because it looks "old", but because it requires so much context from the series. I think for the young these days this would look like a crappy old cartoon with decent, but old, rock music.
It was Aug 2009 when I wrote I've put in my 10,000 hours. Rather than updating that post, I'll save it for history and completely rewrite it.
A long time ago, Malcolm Gladwell was on The Hour, and he talked about his "10,000-Hour Rule" from his book Outliers. When I saw that interview, I realized I've put in my 10,000 hours on a couple of topics now.
However, when I now think back on it, I see a big difference between the "expertise" 10,000 hours of intuitive interest, versus 10,000 hours of practice with a learned skill.

Five Things is currently what I do.
Good time management is an incredible stress-reducer.
I think I've been able to bring my various experiences to a time management system which works for me.
Unplugging is really important.

Problem: I collect information, and I need a mechanism to process it. My going through old links or performing smaller tasks is random.
Solution: Do at least five interesting things each day. Create new posts or a summary post of any edits or other interesting things.
Yeah, I haven't updated this in a while. I'll revisit this concept eventually.
I haven't really decided what I should focus on this July, August, September. I'll keep this post updated.
