    The funny thing, for me, is that I’m actually comfortable with all this chaos. The whole internet thing doesn’t bother me. Why not?


    Maybe it’s because I grew up in a small town, maybe it’s because I was writing from an early age, maybe it’s because I never trusted media and politicians, having seen from the inside how they fabricate reality, maybe it’s because I read a lot of science fiction and to me all this is normal. But my advice is: don’t lose your head over all this, it’s not nearly as bad as you are being led to believe, and it serves only to obscure the real problems – the abuse of power, authority and wealth – that we have always had.

    When there’s a single metric (likes/followers), we end up looking in the rear-view mirror when we should be driving instead.

    Maximizing the benefits for the social media platform you’re on are different than maximizing the benefits for you and those you are leading.
