The Continuing Importance of Me.

I believe that Social Networking has benefits, thus I also believe Online Social Networking has benefits. Early adopters of Internet believed the CRT monitor would become a window to the world; removing the barrier of geography to enhance understanding and foster a new enlightenment. Unforturnately it seems the LCD monitor is not a window but a mirror. The Personal Computer has become a source of personal validation. The belief that everyone wants to hear what you have to say and understand exactly what you mean even if you speak in vagaries. That is why people believe their *tweets* about what they had for lunch are actual ironic commentary on the supersonic pace of their unbelievably busy life. Sadly though, the ironic well has flooded, sending ironic waste seeping into the fabric of the public streets.

  • I used to believe in the beauty of words and the persistence of memory. Now I believe in the energy of engagement and the dialogue of determination.

    The lessons are imbued in the fruits of the vine. Like Mulder from the X-Files said, "the truth is out there"

  • but how do you know it is truth and not someone's narcissistic need for attention?
    dialogue of determination? what ever happened to good ol fashioned face to face communication, or paper to pen letter writing?
    what happened to old fashioned love letters?
    they have gone by the wayside of
    instant gratification, of self importance, of computer connect, not deep pools of lingering eye to eye

  • These are making us impatient and superficial. We need to go back to our basics.

    Keep writing!!!
