Watching Lives Unfold

I’ve been pretty sad about the state of the internet lately. But it is somewhat amazing that this age of media has made it easier than ever to see what the lives of other people are like.

I’ve just watched a 30 minute blog by Tom the Taxi Driver, giving a really clear idea what a day as a cab driver is like. In another age, I’d have never learned about this most likely.

I’m spending more time watching YouTube than Netflix or Prime or TV+, specifically for that reason. Nothing else could satiate make wanting to learn about a wide variety of topics I never knew I wanted to know about, without any effort whatsoever.
