End-of-the-Internet Principle:

Arrange your social media input on the twin premises that (a) there is an end to the internet and (b) it should be possible to run up against it in any given day of casual use.


What does that mean in practical terms?

For one thing, managing your feeds and follows across platforms (RSS, email, social platforms e.g. Mastodon) so that browsing through them for a reasonable amount of time will bring you back to the point where you left off.

That (for all intents and purposes) is The End of the Internet, and once you've reached it, it's time to log off and do something else while the accounts and sites you follow work on building more.

@lrhodes i love it! i'm glad i read this before arriving at my own end of the internet :)
