Live TV-IM-PM-Social Media
Earlier while watching a movie there was a clear shot of the Twin Towers and I caught myself reflecting upon that day, and then I remembered the explosion of The Challenger which I also watched on Live TV.
With a little more reflection I thought about instant messaging and private messaging. This naturally leads to social media like Facebook, GT and other forms of internet social media.
I can't help but wonder what the effects of internet social media will be for future generations. We sure conduct a lot of interpersonal business in non-personal ways, sometimes with strangers. I've thought more than once that's it a little odd that I feel closer to a couple of folks on GT than I do people in real life.
