A while ago I decided to drop out of social networks as the amount of information was just overwhelming and checking facebook, google+, following on twitter did take up more and more time of a day and became quite distracting. Then there were also those other reasons such as I didn’t like that the UI constantly changed so that I didn’t find the information or needed to reconfigure views; in addition the Facebook privacy policy really turned me off. For now I focus on direct contacts in real life, IM or mail and when I think I have something interesting to share I put it on my blog. Less noise, more valuable communication.

Yesterday I found a pretty funny comic here, basically outlining what I felt all along.

Jim planned to do some breakfast and asked me what I would like. I hadn’t had a boiled egg in ages, so I was asking him for a soft-boiled egg for me. As he – as a good cook as he is – doesn’t know how to cook these, the day started with Loriot, a German lesson and some facts about marriage which a freshly engaged couple would swear it will never happen to us…
