My Information Diet
In which John discusses the dumbing of his phone and his new information diet, all designed to protect him from the self he becomes when twittering.
I’m not sure if the social media anxiety/malaise I feel is something others will be able to relate to, or if it’s specific to my life, but I am trying to sort through whether the architecture of the social internet makes it an inherently unfun/unhealthy place for me to hang out, or whether this is just a phase, like that time in ninth grade when I wore a trench coat for six months even though I lived in Florida and it was hot all the time. But for now, I’ve decided to experiment with a low-information diet.
