A few years back I became such an AYS-hole on facebook that eventually I overcame such ‘stage’ and then abandoned it altogether. Erich Fromm wrote about “social media” some years ago: “Today we come across an individual who behaves like an automaton, who does not know or understand himself, and the only person that he knows is the person that he is supposed to be, whose meaningless chatter has replaced communicative speech, whose synthetic smile has replaced genuine laughter, and whose sense of dull despair has taken the place of genuine pain. Two statements may be said concerning this individual.… Read more »
For anyone interested, I recently stopped using Gmail and now pay for ProtonMail, which is an end-to-end encrypted email service. It doesn’t cost too much, and they have a limited free option as well if you wanted to give it a shot.
Interestingly, I have received a decent amount of backlash from my friends when I tell them I’ve done this, dismissing my behavior as overly paranoid. I’m glad you brought this up, and hopefully we can at least have more constructive conversations about this in the future.

Now to rationalize use of FB etc…. we do have some good stuff in our “private “ community FB… Read more »
private is great
problem is, AFAIK (b/c that is how it is in public groups)
your members don’t see updates from the group consistently in their timeline
and if you use the timeline, you are already screwed.
Scott, I’m a big fan of emcrit and all you do. On your statement about the golden rule, the actual golden rule takes into account the paternalistic approach in medicine and supporting others with their best interests in mind. Doing unto others as they would like to be done upon could mean giving the addict more opiates, letting the OD patient die, or supporting a person’s poor life choices rather than guiding them and mentoring a person to be better. As a physician and Christian, I am continuously working to develop expertise and learn how to better and best help… Read more »
