WritingNovember 1, 2016
So it’s a bit over a year since I wrote about writing. Has anything changed? Well, yes. I initially thought I’d be sharing many more blog posts about my own thoughts, but for some reason those all end up in half-baked Google docs. Hitting publish is hard. It is much easier to write one or two lines of commentary on someone else’s writing, than to produce any essay worth sharing. But there is a gray area right next to content creation:
"Creation versus consumption" is such a narrow way to frame thinking about computing. I spend half of some days routing.— Benedict Evans (@BenedictEvans) October 30, 2016
Routing people to worthwhile content is possibly as important these days as creating the content itself - isn’t that what Facebook and Twitter’s algorithms do, after all? - and between a few pieces of content, mainly photos, and a blog post here and there, I went from 0-5 daily sessions to 20-40 daily sessions on this site in the last year.
Here’s to more writing.
