I try to keep myself using as few apps as I can and as few web services as I can. I don’t experiment with them. I don’t try out new things nearly as much as I used to. As I’ve gotten older, I’m less inclined to want to change the way I’m doing things. I’m also less inclined to start up on something that’s new because I have a sense that things that are new are not going to get old. Very few new things end up getting old. They just don’t last long enough. If I’d gotten myself in the habit of using Product A and Product A goes away, then I’m screwed. And I’m tired of that. That’s happened plenty of times over the years.
