I guess I lied in my last post. I did write a blog post, just didn't publish it. This is from mid December.
Oh well, I haven't had much of an online presence in the last few months. The initial reason was moving house, but then I realised I was actually enjoying not reading newsgroups, answering questions, beta testing, reading the feeds, keeping up with the new tech....yada yada.
In all honesty I was bored, stuck in a rut. Wake up, check PC, read mail, read groups, read RSS, fiddle with some new tool/idea, go to work, read mail, read groups, read RSS, fiddle with some new tool/idea, go home, read mail, read groups, read RSS, fiddle with some new tool/idea....ad nauseum
I suppose it was inevitable. It's just not that exciting or interesting. Another new site/idea, another new mp3/vid player, a new methodology, Web 2.0....yawn. It seems like those making the running are all touts for some product. Maybe I need to treat it like work and take holidays from it every year!
For someone who has spent the last 12 years virtually living in it, it has been a good thing to walk away. Taking a step back I can see it isn't really that important.
That's what I like about this life. You can do whatever you want, whenever you want. No ones forcing you to do stuff.
