I’ve been thinking lately about boundaries, barriers, and offline/online life—such as a distinction exists, which no, it doesn’t always. I spend a good portion of hours online, but the offline ones, those stay offline (except when people are posting photos of me or text messages I’ve sent onto their own Facebook pages. Stop doing that, please).
The exceptions are professional-ish networking sites, where one is obligated to spin one’s day-long practice of “sending emails” into marketable, communicable, valuable, purposeful outcomes. Which is fun to consider. Literally—I mean that in the old sense—what I mostly do all day is read and write emails. But literally—new sense—I do a bunch of other things, like engage people’s curiosity and creativity, raise a bunch of money, and sometimes even, through the magic of fonts and colors, inspire people to leave their homes and go meet other people.
Since I’m not using Tumblr as a blogging/mental off-gassing space for the foreseeable future, I hope you’ll find me in one or all of these professional-ish spaces:
