Mike Hall, in a post about Micro.blog, referred to what he called a "Product manager of Me" exercise and that phrase made my head spin. If I were the product manager of Me I would have been fired so hard so many times. I'm terrible at that job.
I have this posted above my desk. It's good advice, but there are 2 problems. First, I ignore it. Second, I have so many things that it doesn't help much when I do heed it.
I saw this in a Wired article today:
Generate your own text—but get help from the AI bot to make it stand out.
Because that's what we're all doing here..."generating text".
I suspect that the reason I've been posting more at daily.baty.net than on my "main" blog is that I have Hugo fatigue. Sometimes I don't feel like making a new file and adding/editing front matter every time. It's why Tinderbox or WordPress or Micro.blog are so compelling.
Speaking of fatigue, I'm wondering if maybe this is all a symptom of some kind of overarching "Digital Fatigue". None of my digital output is adding up to anything. It all feels so fungible and intangible and ephemeral. I may need to withdraw into the real world for a while.
