Things I discovered (while away from Twitter)

More than meets the eye.

Instead of checking Twitter and Facebook compulsively on my way to work in the morning, I’ve been reading news sites, blogs, and other media. Disconnecting from social media has allowed me to connect with less demanding, and ultimately more interesting media and content.

Don’t get me wrong, I think social media has its place. I just think that there’s a higher percentage of important content to be found elsewhere. As much fun as videos of frogs attacking their owners may be.

What else did I discover?

Is Hillary inevitable?

The gendering of children.

Pantone tarts. Delicious colour.

Why you don’t need a rooster to make a chicken egg.

My new gig, which involves listening to politicians, has left me wondering if there’s an audience for a political food blog highlighting the 308 federal ridings in Canada.

Finally, as William Morris said, “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
