“Sounds like you curate people.”
This was said in a less-than-admiring tone, by someone interviewing me for a job.
The question of networking had come up, and as usual I was struggling not to express how much I despise “fun” events which are really just a way of extending work hours.
I’m upfront about stating that I’m very protective of my non-work time, and that I’m very selective about which groups I join and which events I attend, and that in my experience it’s better to know the right people than the most people. Which is what led to the above comment. Because obviously some people think it’s anti-democratic to admit that not everyone has got something awesome to offer the world. But as a person with limited energy I reserve the right not to interact with just anyone.
Anyway, this is just another short post to say that I’m still not dead, I’m just curating people. It’s exhausting, but exciting. Plato’s army of lovers has nothing on my merry band of artists and mad scientists.
