Stay with me here.
While, yes, I’m “connected” with more people than I ever thought possible, am I really communicating with any of them? Sometimes it seems like all interaction has been relegated to 140 characters or less (yes, I’m talking about you, Twitter). Everyone is so busy trying to think of something witty or unique or trendy or impressive to say, that they’re not really saying what they think. I’ve been just as guilty as anyone else of Twittering a quote – as if someone else’s words can better convey my ideas than my own!
I suppose that’s part of the reason I decided to start this blog. First, there’s more room – ’cause I like to use lots of words! And secondly, there’s opportunity for people to respond on specific topics. So, if anyone’s out there reading – what do you think? Have instant messaging, Twitter, and blogs increased communication or just the illusion of it?
