We need a break. We need an opportunity to learn to the features we already have responsibly — without tools! Also, we need the time for a fundamental conversation about where we want to push the web forward to.
How about this.. YOU take a break. Stop trying to keep up with every little new thing that comes out. Wait a while.
And you'll get exactly what you want.
The tools that it turns out were a bad idea will die. And those that are good will thrive.
And you'll get more time to learn the actually useful ones... and you'll get to learn from the mistakes others made early on.
Yes, you'll be a bit behind.. but you're apparently already ok with that anyway.
