Dopamine For The Win

I've blogged before about how the internet affects our neurotransmitters, and it's still an alarming thing to me. Last night I shared an observation on Twitter that got 7 favorites.

And each time, I was like "Hey! The world noticed me!"

And each time I had to remind myself "Hey! Those people don't even know you." Indeed, only one of them was someone I'd interacted with before.

There's something about the Internet. It's insidious.

(Just like the Federation...)

Couldn't resist quoting DS9 there. Sorry. Nerd alert.

But seriously. It's so easy to fall into the trap of caring too much about what goes on online. It's good to get distance.

Now, I'm off to tweet about having just written this blog post.
