Multi-billion member social networks, robots that can chase you down, algorithms that decide whether you get to live or die. Just a few high points to the world that’s fast approaching. Having not not posted here in a six months plus, I have to ask if creating content outside the walls of a social network is even a thing anymore for people other than very-non-millennials such as myself, or people trying to sell you something.

I know that the care and feeding of a blog makes living with a bad-tempered cat look good: it take endless offerings of time and money to keep it happy.

But is anyone listening? Or are we all prisoners of our social networks?

Hit leave me a comment and tell me what you think.

  1. I’m listening, Bob!

    It was really nice to see your presence in my rss feed reader – the place I prefer to explore the reported world that is not corporatised and boundaried.

    I also stopped blogging last year and I sort of kind of want to start again, but I’m not sure I REALLY want to either. I don’t know if I have anything to SAY that isn’t simply a reaction to our rather dystopian state of affairs right now.

    As for your own dilemma, I can only say that I have really enjoyed your posts in the past.


    1. Hi Billy,
      I know how you feel – and I’d encourage you to speak and write. It was too many people being silent that got us into the current mess: it will take a lot of people being brave to speak out that will start to fix it. So, go for it!

  2. Bob,

    If people fail to speak what they feel and think, there will be no more new ideas. I find that listening/reading other people’s thoughts helps motivate me. Don’t stop. We all feed off of each other in some fashion.

    I am a man out of time, myself; a Nam vet software developer approaching retirement. I must say, I find your blogs to be thought provoking.
