I have had zero internet presence and I have intentionally not have had any social media accounts before NASA, and even for the first year and a half at being a NASA, just because I have such a visceral feeling with social media. Not because I'm not trying to blame the platform, because I think we all as humans should take accountability for our actions and how we use our tools, but narcissism is perhaps one of the biggest poisons in our society and narcissism breeds narcissism. And, a lot of times the way I've seen social media used as a platform to promote that, and when children see that self promotion that self idolization, they then want to be youtube stars. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, I think people should pursue their dreams, but I think it requires some self reflection and thoughtfulness as a society of what we value, and when you have narcissism as a valued trait, you are by definition putting yourself above others and I think that is not sustainable for a growing and evolving society, and that's why I find service very sustainable, because by definition, you are putting others before yourself. One of my favorite quotes is from Dr. Martin Luther King: Everyone is capable of greatness, not fame but greatness, because greatness is determined by service.' And, I think sometimes people think the definition success is that everyone in the world knows their name, and I think they're missing the point when that is the goal they're trying to seek. And I sometimes see social media used in that, but I agree with you[Jocko Willink] that when used responsibly, respectfully, tactfully, thoughtfully, it can be a platform for good, and what made me change my mind about actually having a social media - and I'm not very active, I try to make a post a week, - a buddy of mine from the Teams said: 'You know, look, you have an opportunity that most people in this world will never have, and people just want to share in some of what you do and learn about it, and if you are using it responsibly not for self promotion, but to promote others and to share some of the cool science and inspire kids, adults, then you owe it to do that', and that was said to me still about a year before I opened up a platform, but it always stuck with me. And, I guess that's why I have been more okay with with having that because I feel that it can be a force for good when used responsibly.
