The past year my interest in online detoxing from the big tech companies grew. It already resulted in a significant amount of personal changes. I ignore facebook, I stopped using many Google products, found alternatives for them and I browse more privately. This detox has its downsides; the most important one is having less online interaction with people I’m only loosely connected with. However, my biggest gain is that I wrote more blogposts (and received more comments!) in less than a year than I did in the years between my first blogpost ever (2003) and the start of IFF. I’m absolutely sure this improved my writing skills.
