Every single person in this room is busy creating beautiful websites. But if we aren’t willing to get off Instagram or Twitter, or whatever stream possesses us, and spend some time exploring the rich web worlds that we’ve all created, then those worlds will be unexplored. And their richness will be emptiness.

It’s about building community. Tame your obsession with empty likes & follows and seek out a modest-sized, supportive community where you actually give as much as you get.
