Dave Winer discusses waking up and facing East, not West, to see the ocean. [here]

Conceptually, I am still having difficulty with the idea that the ocean is East of me. For all of my life, it has been West. I grew up in British Columbia, lived on Vancouver Island and the Bay Area, and until 2003, my world faced West across the Pacific.

Now it faces East, and like so many other things, it is not a comfortable feeling. Perhaps it is time to try and get a job in the UK; at least there, my psychic underpinning would be stronger…and the Ocean would be to the West.

And Dave, what’s more disturbing is doing the complete I-90 commute in less than six hours: Logan to Seattle. I have done that a couple of times now, and it still weirds me out.
