The largest social media company went offline yesterday, and gave those of us who use it a well-deserved rest. I was half hoping that it had gone for good. This morning I read that businesses depend on it, and in some respects the semi-professional part of the music work that I'm involved in also depends on it. Nonetheless, it was great to have a break from it. The real world suddenly went up a couple of notches in interestingness and excitingness, and I thought just how lucky those people are who have never engaged with it at all.
I'm going to try to take a day a week off from it and see if I can. It's become a habit to check it regularly throughout the day, but it's not an essential service, is it?
