Among other things, I used to write productivity tools and monitoring for businesses. These days I've seen such tools misused by businesses like Amazon to overwork their employees.

I can't do anything about abuse of technology, but I can choose not to have a hand in it and I sleep easier for it.

I don't want any hand in anything like this:

Life Inside China's Total Surveillance State - YouTube[^]

I don't even want to delve into that arena.

This isn't a judgement of anyone else. The tech is fascinating and I don't fault anyone for wanting to pursue it.

But I can't.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
