Wow, I just sent in my column for “The Last Word” which is all about passwords and lo and behold, I can’t remember the one for this blog. Fortunately, I never delete emails and was able to locate the one from my lovely webster.
My thesis about passwords, or PINs or whatever you want to call them, is that they are tiny badges of self-hood; how we define ourselves in one word, or set of numbers. It took a little bit to figure out how passwords were a fit topic for a column on writing…but I did. It’ll be up on the Martha’s Vineyard Times website Thursday. Let me know what you think.
