2021 Media Restrictions
January 7, 2021
Last year I decided to do one year without junk media. I terminated the project after 7 months when my life circumstances changed. Now that my life is back on track it's time to do another one of these.
The rules are simple:
- No videogames.
- No video, except music videos.
- No media feeds, including news feeds, except Less Wrong and RSS.
- No web surfing blogs. This includes the SCP wiki.
- Research. Answers to predefined questions is allowed.
- Instructional videos such as dance lessong.
- Anything enjoyed socially, with friends.
- Anything I create myself is allowed.
- [January 15-19] My roof blew away, the power went out, I lost my keys and I locked myself out of my house. Then I got sick. I considered this extenuating circumstances and granted myself an exception.
- [January 25+] I'm adding an exception for YouTube but not news, videogames and media feeds. Let's see how this goes.
- [January 31+] I'm also allowing Reddit.
- [February 27+] I'm re-allowing videogames. I guess that means all that's still banned is news and the SCP wiki.
This is simpler than the last one. The last one banned comics and allowed certain kinds of video.
