Happy birthday to my AIM account! I registered my first and only AIM screen name at 3:34 PM on Sunday, March 22nd, 1998.
Now I must say goodbye to it for a little while, as I've decided to try something radical: I'm going to unplug myself from my constant stream of info. I have emails, IMs, and feeds constantly available to me, and they're a constant source of distractions. I'm going to make it a top priority to strictly meter my time online, which means I will:
- keep my instant messenger accounts logged off
- check my email and a subset of my feeds at the library
- limit my blogging efforts
I think this will be a great exercise for me. Here's to more productive uses of my time! (...and maybe my blog posts will be more readable/approachable.)
