Scoble is right

From Robert Scoble’s blog, answering to a reader who doesn’t understand why he spends time with “boring” geeky things:
The real thing I’ve been doing for more than eight years now is to try to arrange my life so that I have an interesting conversation every day with someone interesting.

Robert is right. We don’t aspire to a tropical island, with a tropical drink, and tropical cute girls, and nothing to do all day long.
We want interesting things in our lives.
That is, I agree, a wonderful life.

And I also believe I’m on the right path :-)

    Your argument that those who embrace technology are more productive than those who do not is way off base, as is the implication that luddites just want to relax.

    I would put my productivity against yours or anyone else’s. And I think it’s high BECAUSE I avoid social networking and tech gadgets. While others spend hours a day chatting and reading on Twitter or Facebook, I am getting work done. The result: millions of dollars in revenues, dozens of copywriting clients, an Internet business that grosses six figures a year in passive income, and over 70 books published by NYC publishing houses.

    To accomplish this, I work a full 12 hours a day! I do not own a cell phone or have a Twitter account, but I am hardly a slacker sitting on the beach.
