What is it with working online that is so great … the possibility of flexible hours, working on cutting edge technlology projects, meeting thousands of people spread across the globe ???
That of course does happen but at what cost to your sanity?
I have met some amazing people online, that is a fact, but I have also met some real assholes and snakes too. From unfilled promises, to downright abuse of trust is the tip of the iceberg.
I vow this; if I ever get to the point where any one of my ventures gives me enough capital to hangup my coding gloves, I will do it big time.
By this I mean, I will delete all my social media accounts, terminate my online phone numbers, terminate all my website domains, terminate all my hosting accounts, close my Skype account etc etc… You get the picture.
I will then go live away from it all, next to a beach or lake and say goodbye to the 'new era of technology'. Maybe it is coming sooner that I could hope for.
