These days, if you don’t send it via text format, I most likely don’t know about it. Sure I do online research on things that fascinate me.. and watch television and go outside. But if you really want me to notice what you’re doing- send it meta, and you will get a faster response.
The most recent blog was a response to another blog.. not listed for my own reasons, and, once again to provide some anonomity.
I got a message on my myspace referencing a comment that was made to this blog. I wanted to respond via email- however will be doing so in yet another blog.
I’m noticing that is actually very common. Are we that busy that we don’t pick up the phone anymore? That digital transmissions have nearly replaced other forms of direct communication?
Have a fight? Resolve it in instant messages. Email back and forth.
Want to get out your frustrations? Start a forum war. Cause drama online. Why even bother leaving the privacy of your own home? Do it the safer, quicker way.
How many of you would go nuts without your cell phones? The ability to get online? The ability to digitally transcribe “I was here” in the sand?
Some days I think most of us just need to walk away and unplug for a bit. Here’s to dedicating a few more hours a day towards weaning off the crack. I’m going on a Jenny Craig of the meta proportion. If you need me, you know where to find me… yes, that means this weekend I plan on being at the beach again. Home. Zen.
