This was a post I did on LinkedIn.
I love technology as much as anyone I know. I was the first person I know to have an iPhone, listen to podcasts and completely disengage with all humanity, including my wife and daughter, due to the rise of YouTube. My mom bought us a TRS 80 when I was about 11 and ever since that moment, sitting there trying to figure out how to program BASIC — and failing - or uploading pong from an audio tape, I’ve been hooked on monitors. I have the exact same issues everyone seems to have these days, which is an vague, itching boredom whenever I can’t duck away to add a vignette to my cloud photo or track my miles, even if I’m just walking in circles like a mental patient.
