I no longer know why I’m doing this.
I’m about to cease doing the Alt-Wheels Notes posts. I’ve been encountering my own resistance in doing them. Thinking about that made me realize why. As far as I’m concerned, I’m documenting the now. I was ahead of things with my first formal post about Alt-Wheels — The Future For NYC: Portable Electric Scooters. I was there before there were any rental eScooter companies. Now there are many, cities are being conquered by the sheen of Silicon Valley (which, it seems, it what it takes to get any change for Alt-Wheels; individual ownership before those companies existed didn’t do a thing), and the subject is boring me.
I’m also bored by posting about iOS and Apple hardware.
And Android is dead to me — thank you, iOS 13 — so there’s no post possibilities there now, either.
The Human Variables Category still interests me. But those really take more time than most posts. And I’m not sure — oh irony — that I’m motivated to do them.
WordPress is also making it difficult for free bloggers like me. There are behind-the-scenes things going on which make people like me feel increasingly unwelcome. Even though, you know, people like me helped popularize the goddammed platform.
I think 2020 will see the end of blogging by me.
Unless there’s something out there as the Next New Thing I can see before everyone else.
