I Don't Always Write Full Blog Posts

Sometimes I end up creating a thread using the Micro.blog Conversation view and I actually did so intentionally.

There is great flexibility within this system, and even though it would be great if everything was easily explained let’s not forget the idea that Facebook/Twitter are “simple and easy” is in fact a big pile of bullshit. As such, when it comes to comparisons I would say there is more to it than feature vs. feature; there is in fact a larger conversation to be had about how we use the web, how we live on it, and what it is we should expect from other people.

I know such large topics are not normally covered on a “social media site”, with all of the nuance inherit therein, but maybe it is time to reconsider this idea and just choose a better platform.

Maybe it is time to make yourself uncomfortable, place greater value on your time spent on the web, and find that thinking differently is possible outside of the corporate social web.
