What feeds these squatters?
I planted the question in my mind to spark confirmation bias while I browsed my feeds. (A usual trick.)
An article should pop up in my Dev twitter list. Or on Hacker News. Or on a tangent.
Nothing did, so I went searching, and searching, and—
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.
