For a while now, I’ve been annoyed at how much internet “noise” is going on in my life.
I’ve found myself getting wound up by constantly getting notifications from Facebook about meaningless photos and comments, wound up by the constant oneupmanship on Twitter and the wankfest that is dribbble.
In short, I need to cut these out for my own sanity.
For the last couple of days, I’ve not had Twitter open and whether I got more work done than normal is debatable, I didn’t feel exhausted and annoyed by the constant snarking and lovely duvvy isn’t the industry a cool place.
I’ve turned Facebook notifications off so Lois can post her fucking cat photo that we’ve already seen 10 times that day and I’m not checking out sites like dribbble where if you have 3000 followers, they’ll like any old tat or as someone on Twitter said, “wanking for coin”.
So for the time being, I’m taking a back seat, here are the keys, have a nice ride. I’m not 100% out of the game but I’m dedicating more time to learning, family, fun and sleep.
Last one out turn off the light.
