Since starting my Twitter hiatus in January, I’ve spent more time on user forums (like those for Drafts, and the Automators podcast) and I’ve seen more evidence for something that’s always puzzled me: fear of scripting.
I understand that there are only so many hours in a day and whatever time you invest in learning the rudiments of a new language takes time away from other things you’d like to do—or need to do. We all have to make decisions about what is worth our time and what isn’t. I feel this more strongly as I approach 60 and realize that there are things I’d like to learn but will never get to.
