I hear you, Jack. I really do. Here's how it tends to go with me:

  1. I hear about a new [thing] - could be software, could be a tool, could be something completely different.
  2. I research [thing] to within an inch of its life.
  3. I get excited by other people gushing over [thing] and I go right ahead and implement it / buy it / whatever.

I tell myself that it's not FOMO, but rather curiosity and a desire to explore new things.

-- Jack Baty

I really don't think it's FOMO, either. For me it's the fun of exploring new things and learning about them. Problem is, for me at least, the novelty often wears off and, like a magpie, I find myself being coaxed into exploring the next shiny thing. 🤷‍♂️

Still bloody enjoying Kirby though...
