@joshmillard I think a big part of the problem is the way that social media has flattened social spaces, removed boundaries, and made everything potentially a public performance. Which coincided with the decline of face-to-face community networks and groups.
So it's harder to cultivate social networks where you can do difficult work without exposing yourself to the economy of likes and reblogs.
