I planted the question in my mind to spark confirmation bias while I browsed my feeds. (A usual trick.)

Nothing did, so I went searching, and searching, and—

Oh no.

Nononononononono…

Well, this is gonna suck.

I turned off the internet — the enemy’s food source — at home, where I work.

Despite having written apps and continuing to create for mobile, I am not a fan of and therefore do not own a phone.

I went 100% dark, and started writing code.
