I tell people on my newsletter, all the time, to tune their internet connections until they are useful and fun. The public internet stopped being fun for me some years ago, and I disconnect from it for half of each year at least. I like newsletters, blogs and RSS, podcasts
These are all just tools, and you can fiddle around with them any way you like.
This is great advice. I love following Ellis on the internet. There is something about his voice and the way he shares that resonates with me. A lot of my own tendencies with the internet and the way I share are heavily inspired by Ellis.
But as a reminder, these are tools to be fiddled with, not to overtake our lives and enslave ourselves.
