I’m on Steemit now, and I don’t get it.
After several years, I finally get Twitter. Facebook took me a little while too (I thought Myspace was better, granted that was when you needed a .edu email address to get on Facebook, and I was no longer a student). Instagram doesn’t do anything for me. Reddit is great, but like scanning a fun newspaper in a foreign language. Snapchat feels like the worst user experience I’ve ever seen and no plausible use case I can find for myself.
I love it when I don’t get it. It means there are entire sections of society and culture in which others are fluent and I’ve yet to understand. It means there are trends and changes I need to scramble to see. It means the world is bigger and more interesting than what’s in my head.
Sometimes I eventually get it. Other times I don’t. Sometimes the things I don’t get end up being dumb anyway. Other times they’re world-changing.
I’m always up to dabble, even if the result is total confusion.
