The loneliest place
You're on it
The loneliest place has billions of people on it.
Below are five things I thought were worth sharing this week:
The loneliest place promises to connect us with these billions of people worldwide, at any given time of the day.
The loneliest place is where we spend the majority of our time.
The loneliest place is full of noise, chats, arguments.
The loneliest place is supposed to make us feel less lonely.
Not long ago, I used to spend a lot of my time at the loneliest place; engrossed, addicted, alone.
In today’s news of they do be lyin’, Facebook’s spokesperson claims that people like to blame technology for political polarization to feel “comfort” at having something to put the blame on and that it’s “delirious” to do so. No conscience, no shame, no humanity.
A quote I want to share with you this week:
“Nothing, to my way of thinking, is a better proof of a well ordered mind than a man’s ability to stop just where he is and pass some time in his own company.”
— Seneca, Letters from a Stoic
A short and lovely message from Austin Kleon on Rewinding your attention and going back to older ways of attending.
Rewinding your attention, for many of us who grew up in the wilder days of the web, means going back to older ways of attending. For me, it also means going back to my beginnings, remembering the weird interests that brought me to my work, re-discovering and maybe re-investing in those interests, and sharing them in the way that has brought me so much.
(No more books, but) A question for you: How are you rewinding your attention this week?
That’s all for this week!
