Diminishing eureka...

Do you have this? Have what Pablo?

The feeling that it is hard to properly enjoy the discovery of something new and interesting and pleasing since you can't help but be simultaneously aware of all the other people who have discovered, are discovering, or will soon discover the same thing? Do you tap into a wave of nausea upon realizing that you are just one of many "triggered" responders, eager to claim this discovery as their own? The internet inspires many of these diminishing "Eureka!" moments. Blogs, travel writing, and college radio stations reek of a specific brand of desperation that wants to bask in the glory and sheen of pointing at cool things.
