Recently I’m feeling like my phase of expanded connectivity than began with obtaining an iphone/ipad may be transitioning to a contraction phase. A lot of this stuff is feeling like busy work or even ‘busy play’, in one ear and out the other and ultimately meaningless other than as a way to pass time. I’m not and never have been into promoting myself as a brand or whatever, and it feels like a game a lot of people are WAY INTO, which is fine—I’ll leave them to it. Too many teapot tempests for my taste, and I don’t even like tea in the first place.
This will mean pruning a lot of RSS feeds, disinvolving myself from online-only matters, and a lot less social networking (twitter, tumblr, etc). But really, I’ve only ever seen any value to any of that as idea generation in the first place — and if I’ve generated any useful ideas then my time at this point would be far better spent refining and developing, not sifting. Twitter, tumblr, etc. all involve a lot of sifting, and I have enough sand in my shoes for now.
Of course, I may feel totally different about this all next week and decide OH GOD I NEED TUMBLR IN MY LIFE — but having never felt that before I somewhat doubt it. Whatever ends up happening, I’m going to bring it all back to http://aaronpoehler.com so you can find me there if you need to.
