My name is Ionysus and I’m addicted to technology. The irony of writing that in a blog post does not escape me. I am addicted to technology and I cannot recover as a neo-luddite. I am part of a technological society. I cannot separate myself from it, and I don’t yet know how to soberly use technology.
My primary technological addictions include:
- online video (Netflix, Hulu & Youtube),
- aimless surfing,
- feeds aggregated by Google Reader,
- compulsively designing personal information systems, and
- obsessively using my iPhone.
I will share the details as I write this blog. For now, know that I am powerless over my use of these info-technologies.
I’ve started this blog to chronicle my recovery from information technology. Today is day 1.
Thank you for helping keep me sober today.
