Careful connections

A colleague of mine charged his phone all night. Ten hours. In the morning, the battery was still dead. Turns out, one end of the cable was plugged into his phone, and the other end was plugged into nothing.

We can be very careful to connect ourselves to a channel or a network, but establishing that connection doesn’t mean we’re being fed. We need to pay attention to what’s flowing through those pipelines... if anything at all.
