Maybe Ration My Time In Hot Take Land

I dunno, folks. Over the years I have seen so much outrage – sincere or feigned – on social media. Then there’s the echo chamber problem. Yeah. Nice thing about an RSS feed is that I’m guaranteed to see everything I subscribe to, but there’s no personal insult in unsubscribing.

I think maybe I could spend less time on Twitter and Facebook. Not give them up. They remain a source of great conversation. But this nonsense takes up brain that I just can’t spare. Some of my online friends cut themselves out completely, and they like it. Perhaps I should follow their example. Besides, each of them that moves on means one less bit of signal in the noise.

There is so much noise.
