@jamesshelley Was just reading this via RSS (so your voice is still loud and clear) and wholeheartedly agree.

@jamesshelley It’s tough. I’ve felt the fear that removing myself from social media (rather than using it to syndicate content from my site) will render anything I’m saying into a void. I’ve also been surprised at how few of my Facebook friends (and family) have signed up to receive my updates as an email digest when I leave Facebook. However I think it’s an important step I still want to take, regardless.

@EddieHinkle One of the takeaways for me has been just how inflated social media's promise of 'an audience' really is. Perhaps signing off is not necessarily as much about 'losing' an audience as it is about rejecting the illusion of one?

@jamesshelley You flatter me sir. But, likewise.

@jamesshelley That is really profound and actually makes the idea of turning my silos off much easier to swallow!
