Rescued from my Google+ archive, August 2011:
"Years ago, I wanted a smartphone so I could write down all the blog posts I compose in my head when I’m away from a computer. Now that I have one, I end up reading Facebook, Twitter, or Google Plus instead, and I compose blog posts in my head when I’m away from both my computer AND my phone. Maybe I just need a pencil and notepad."
It really speaks to how expectations for mobile computing were derailed so quickly by the social media feedback loop.
