I love technology. I love how it simplifies my life. 10,000 songs and the Internet in my pocket? Awesome.
What I do not love is how “social” technology has all but ruined social interaction. What ever happened to face-to-face communication?
To eye contact?
To someone giving you their undivided attention during conversation?
To sitting through a movie without the bluish glare of dozens of smartphone screens distracting you?
To driving without having to dodge texting drivers?
To giving a presentation to a captive audience in your company’s conference room?
To the joy of receiving a real letter, written by hand and sent with a stamp?
To truly caring about what’s on the minds of your handful of friends (not your 400+ Facebook friends)?
I truly question if people have become more social, because I am having a tough time trying to get through to people on personality alone.
