"The move to anonymity is being led by young people who have seen the performative, show-your-best-self internet created by platforms like Facebook and Instagram, and are rejecting it as too fake and curated to contain their truest thoughts and expressions. Their desire to cultivate online space for radical honesty will ensure that the web’s anonymous underbelly continues to flourish, no matter how harmful the titans of tech think it is."

What’s Behind the Gossip-App Backlash? — Daily Intelligencer

"

I saw the business of writing for what it truly was and is to me. It is your penance for not being lucky. It is an attempt to reach others and to make them love you. It is your instinctive protest, when you find you have no voice at the world’s tribunals, and that no one will speak for you.
I would give my entire output of words, past, present, and to come, in exchange for easier access to the world, for permission to state “I hurt” or “I hate” or “I want.” Or, indeed, “Look at me.”

And I do not go back on this. For once a thing is known it can never be unknown. It can only be forgotten. And writing is the enemy of forgetfulness, of thoughtlessness. For the writer there is no oblivion. Only endless memory.

— Anita Brookner

"El hecho de que haya muchas formas para lograr seguir escribiendo y que exista, además, el recurso de inventar trucos y artimañas que permiten que la escritura genere nueva escritura, hace que, de alguna manera, se atenúe la angustia que produce la idea de que llegará un momento en el cual no se podrá escribir más”."

Es el cul-de-sac de la elección.
En especial cuando ves pasar frente a tus ojos el que juzgas ser tu “dream job”.
