It took almost a year to break myself of the conditioning that if I'm online, I have to be a brand. What an unexpected gift Mastodon has given me!

@stuarttempleton Maybe this is a weird question in context (and feel free to disregard), but: can you explain what that conditioning *was*, and what it looks like? For someone who spends a lot of time on the internet I have a really hard time wrapping my head around the concept.
