Not too long ago I read “Hackers and Painters” and I really enjoyed it. The author, Paul Graham, has a blog. I really like what he says. Ideas like his have often appeared in my head.
Weeks ago I decided to close my Facebook account. I couldn’t put into words the exact reason. While addictive, I just couldn’t find how it makes my life any better. I wondered what useful things did I get out of investing my time on Facebook. Reading his article helped me see the situation a bit clearer: http://www.paulgraham.com/addiction.html
