Truth if you want to isolate.
OP's point is clearly to stay connected with his friends etc. So simply stopping isn't solving the problem.
Whoa I think I have a similar issue. Been seeing the doctor multiple times, trying to get tested for various things. They keep telling me I'm "healthy" though. It's frustrating. Hope your tests give you some clarity!

I don't understand why comments so far are talking about people online being inconsiderate. I'm talking about the opposite. Was my post unclear?

Sorry but isn't this what Snapchat is for? Or what instagram used to be?
HAhaha I'm 30, but damn that shows my lack of knowledge in tech! Oops!
It's just my broad perception of 1.0 vs 2.0 from the things I've read.
I absolutely love the idea of the public square. It's been something I've been dreaming of for a while now, to have a place on the web like that. But having the entire web as one public square, that blows my mind.
The more I think about it, the more I realize that the web is really just a container. A container of infinite possibilities.
In the beginning (Web 1.0), it was one of static websites. Web 2.0 made it interactive, allowing for user input such as comments etc., which laid the foundation for the more recent explosion of walled-gardens and web-apps.
While it's easy to celebrate the old and criticize the new, in the end nothing is intrinsically "good" or "bad". With the web being a container of possibilities, it means we're free to dream, design, and defend whatever it is that we want the web to be.
That's my philosophical take anyway.

It's better now that HN has been giving some really great feedback, either on the specific work itself, or mostly from answering all my other questions surrounding it. This exchange of thought and ideas and different perspectives has been super helpful in getting myself to move forward.
With regards to the vision itself, my belief has been that, when I'm able to communicate my ideas enough to get others on board, will only be when I am done writing the essay itself! As in, the content of the work itself explains all the reasons why the work exists. If that makes sense.
But so far, I think having some people roughly get my idea has already been really helpful, so I don't feel nearly as isolated about it as a few months ago!
