I was quite moved by this. It's a video cut to "This Is Water... Living A Compassionate Life" by David Foster Wallace. I might have to do what Faris did which is buy some copies for people. Which is where I found it. On Faris' blog. The third post he's written all month.
When you spend a lot of time online you find yourself, suddenly, getting all of your content sort of spoon-fed to you. You sign up for all the feeds and tweets and the emails with a dozen links of posts from yesterday.
And when this happens certain sites begin to take over: Fast Company, TechCrunch, TED, HBR, and the like. There's so much daily content put out by these type of sites that they drown out the blogs who also live in your feeds. Suddenly, the people who post a few times a month never get noticed. And time goes by.
It's good to hand-select your content. Approach each day clicking on whatever you're in the mood for and not getting lazy with a stream of feeds. Limit those 20-post a day sites. Perhaps rely on dark social to get you to their good stuff.
