Short Web Attention Span
Recently i have noticed my attention span on the interweb getting shorter and shorter, regular website that i read everyday seem boring to me, even my faithful Inquirer has started to seem a little dull.
I’ve noticed this happen a few times before, but never at the rate it is at the moment.
I used to check Shacknews, Hard|OCP, Hexus, filehippo ans quite a few others and although they were updated daily i kind of jsut got bored of them after a while and stopped checking.
But the past few weeks its gotten really bad, i’ve even gone off digg.com and im starting to get bored of blogmad.
The only 2 sites i check religiously are my flickr and my blog. I know i’ve been busy with my project, but i still have the time to blog and browse, i just thing that maybe im getting bored of the interweb slightly, or at least many of the traditional sites where predictable news and stories, if i ever want to find something i jsut google it from firefox.
Its like i’m just bouncing around the net picking things up as i go, i much prefer to write a blog post or do something creative rather than read the same pages over.
At the moment I’d much prefering to learn a new type of programming or try out some software rather than hear spin about a graphics card or news of a new apple product i cant afford.
My tastes are changing, i dont think i will ever stop using the internet, but im using it in a different way to what i used to, more of a means of communication rather than news, maybe its like Atariboy2.0?
Is anyone else feeling this boredom with their regular sites or am i just going crazy?
