1. I don’t think people are quitting Facebook. There’s quitting Facebook and there’s just not making it the heart and centre of your passion play. I’m of an era where I grew up and the notion that “You’ve Got Mail” was exciting. Everything about email — we would race home after school and be like, “What’s on email” and this is great. It was like little gifts from the heavens. My relationship to email is not like that these days. That doesn’t mean that I’ve left email, but it’s not a place of passion, even when awesome things like a birth announcement come in. That’s awesome, but that doesn’t make me love email. That makes me love my friend who just had a baby.

    Even down to the shoes. Even the shoes.
