This is good stuff Aaron, and I think that this line in particular contains so many potential breakout points. The idea of leveraging various technologies to keep the id at bay is a great one, and there are almost too many products to name that can potentially help in doing so.
One thing that I think is a challenge is creating the right filters. For example, let’s say that I want to avoid all Medium articles, in addition to social media. Then I would have missed this thought provoking essay (as well as a few others).
The biggest difficulty to keeping the id under control is using time, technology, philosophy proactively and not passively.
I would love to know what you (or anyone) think(s) are best tools to filter out the noise.
