Recently I did something dramatic: I got rid of my Blackberry, and I started leaving my computer at the office.
So now I am without (GASP!) Internet access 12-16 hours a day!
The “Always-On Culture” had been feeling oppressive for a while now. Finally I decided to do something about it. Basta.
The biggest benefit so far is; I’m drawing a hell of a lot more. This is, after all, what I get paid to do, and what I’ll be remembered for. Nobody will ever care how many Twitter followers I had or how SEO-optimized my blog was.
The Internet liberates us from so much; it’s our duty not to become again enslaved by something else.
