I cut myself off from social media in October 2022, and it’s been great. I’ll admit that I feel some pressure to return to it because so many people tout its supposed in benefits for professional growth, but I’m still skeptical.

What’s your take on Web3 versions of social media? Do you think protocols like DeSo have any potential for traction, or are they basically an effort to port Web2 over to Web3?

From my perspective, I think the online future needs to look more like the past. Back in the height of personal blogging, tight communities formed around niche subjects and specific writers. The mindless attempt to reach the masses is going to implode on itself eventually.
