|Neil Gaiman, tweeting|
Neil Gaiman was a trendsetter in author-reader online interaction. He's also been a fan of technology and started his blog back in 2001 and was an early adopter of Twitter. To imagine the internet without Neil is hard. His blog went dark for a few weeks when he went to China, but six months is a long time to stop your social media addiction cold turkey. Starting January 2014, the internet will be a lot less Gaiman-y.
"I'll be taking about six months off," Neil said to the Guardian, "a sabbatical from social media so I can concentrate on my day job: making things up."
|Damn you, bird!|
I applaud Neil for pulling away from social media. I don't think I could. Though maybe we should all try to be a little less obsessed?
Who am I kidding, I checked my Twitter feed four times as I wrote this.
Could you go six months without your social media drug of choice? We all know I'd fall off the wagon...
