A year ago I used this space to write about technology, Silicon Valley, videogames and the like.
I buried myself in tech news, subscribed to all kinds of insider blogs, read way more than I probably should have about the new hotness in apps, social media, venture capital etc. Though not an expert by any means, I was well read and as invested as a non-investor could be.
After a couple months of really diving into the tech industry I had a startling epiphany: I hated the tech industry. I unsubscribed from all but one tech blog, stopped following anything within spitting distance of ‘bleeding edge’ and tried to forget about my brief and embarrassing flirtation with being a technology blogger. Follies of youth, let’s call it.
