Do you use social media?
It’s where everybody goes to play a game someone else decided we should play:
- Sharing pictures of our food and our faces. When someone’s taking a photograph, I scarcely know whether to politely walk behind or in front of them to avoid interfering anymore. Do you still enjoy this game?
- Sharing empty ‘professional’ salutations. Complete with automatic “Congratulations on 3 years at Corporation Inc.” messages for people you don’t even know. Do you still enjoy this game?
- What game shall we play instead? I like creating dense, daily 200-400 word idea-espressos. Maybe you like taking unique knolling photos every morning. Why not make a new game?
The Internet allows us to play (almost) any game we want. There are (almost) no rules. So: what game shall we play instead?
