Some of their suggestions:
You don’t have to do everything (Robert).
You don’t have to do things that aren’t comfortable for you (Seth).
Put your purpose and message first, and let your use of social media and other tech serve it (Jane).
You may not be able to take all of your friends from real life with you to your tech homes, but you can find other people interested in what you are writing or are interested in (Christina).
Next stops: Dinner, then Margaret Atwood.
