Had lunch yesterday with two colleagues, one who retired three years ago, the other who's probably less than five years away from it. Among lots of other things, we talked about the difficulties faced by people who retire without any hobbies lying in wait ready to take up the slack. My retired friend hasn't had that problem, and I don't think I will either (ten years from now), as I've got enough projects in mind to keep me happily engaged for another half century.
If I run out of old projects, though, making things like THIS looks like fun. After decades of slinging pixels, it might be good to rearrange atoms for awhile.
In the interim, maybe I'll just buy one. [via Boing Boing]
