I fancy considering myself an early adopter — but with time I’ve become more conservative with core technologies. Sometimes this is reflected on an aversion to beta versions: iOS/macOS, Obsidian, even services like Tana.
Other times, I hold myself back with a technology to give it time. At the moment, I’m really excited to incorporate Whisper’s voice recognition into my workflow. But instead of diving-in, I’ve setup search alerts to keep an eye out on a less geeky macOS release and/or some sort of online service to take some of the setup pain away.
I’m all about testing the rollercoaster on opening day… I just prefer the afternoon slots.
