The Conclusion Of Mike Cane 2008


Pull the strings! Pull the strings!

And for a year, I have.

I had no frikkin idea what nearly a solid year of blogging would be like.


Dear God. I am wiped out!


Some days made me absolutely fucking insane. Even without Simvastatin rotting my mind!

And now I have reached the end.


Two bits of advice before I go.

The first for dealing with the financial chaos of 2009:


The second for every writer and would-be writer out there:


And that’s all there is.

Thanks to everyone who stalked this blog, irregularly popped in, and also linked to it.

My online presence will now flatline. I’ll likely — maybe — pop up on Twitter for reaction to MacWorld Expo and CES introductions.

But a new blog? I have no plans for one.

I need rest!

    I shall miss thee, Mike Cane.

    Who will set the world straight about eReaders? Who will scare the bejeezus outta me while making economic predictions?

    I don’t Twitter. I don’t understand Twitter. I don’t understand why anyone would want to Twitter. But I’ll TRY to check out your Tweets from time to time.

    Unless you change your mind about blogging.

    “Goodnight Mr. Cane.”

    “Go on, get out – last words are for fools who haven’t said enough.”


    See you on Twitter.

  6. Thanks, Mike, and have a happy and restful New Year!

    This blog is a textbook for anyone wanting to do a blog. Study it you won’t waste a second. I didn’t agree with Mike’s every word, but by golly he got me thinking. He also ignited a new desire in me to read. It helped me transition from working into retirement. I actually looked forward to reading his blog and discussing with my friend at lunch. I know Mike doesn’t like comments but I feel better having posted this.
    One last comment, Mike you should consider doing this for a living. I know this could be turned into a revenue stream.

    I’ll be seeing you on twitter, yes? And now what do i do with my blog’s link to your blog? do i need a special category for your dead blog?
    too much to deal with on the first day of the best year ever. i’ll think about it tomorrow, at tara…

  9. JamesM Says:

    Take care, Mike. I didn’t always agree with everything either, but you got me thinking. My favorite posts were the Iron Man animation, “pray for rain” and the “It’s a Wonderful Life” Christmas. I don’t tweet, but I see you on JKontherun occasionally. Be well.

    Don’t say goodbye ,rather -till you blog again. I know you have too much creativity and writing passion to give it up for long. Looking forward to that day when we read you again! You were a a shinning light and will be again.

    Best of luck on your future endeavors. I have enjoyed reading your witty take on things. I look forward to reading more of your stuff soon. You will be back, I know it.

    By the way, ask your Doctor about Lovaza. Fish oil extract made by Pfizer. I’ve had some good results with it recently. Less brain rot! :).

    Bon chance.
    Buena Suerta.
    Good Luck.

    Awwwww, I was wondering what you would do when 2008 ended. Damn man! You know you wouldn’t have felt half so insane if you’d just blogged once a day. Or maybe even just once a day on weekdays. ;)

  14. mikecane Says:

    @zoe: There have been times when I’ve missed having an all-purpose blog. Several items I would have liked to have blogged. Eh. Time to catch some rest.

  15. Sig Ueland Says:

    Hey Mike,
    Date me!


    Your SpaceHospital pals

    PS We miss you.

  16. Jo Anne Ware Says:

    Mike, will you date Sig?

  17. AffiliateGeek Says:
