    I hate cell phones as well. I admit I have one, but it's shut off 90% of the time as it's mainly for emergencies.

    Evolution can suck it. Did you hear about that teacher that got fired because one of her kids' parents complained to the school board about a picture she took of herself at the Guinness brewery? All she was doing was holding a glass of beer, and the picture went up on FB, was seen by the kid, the kid's parents complained, and the school board told the teacher to beat it. Zero tolerance and all that. Maybe she'll sue her job back, maybe she won't. Either way, her life is more complex now.

    The new way of doing things worked out marvelously; this is certainly a new way of getting fired. The teacher isn't the only one, either.

    Seems as if the new way is making your business everyone else's business. Us old folks realized that way before we needed special lectures to tell us that. An average modern social media user STILL hasn't caught on.

    Just sayin'.

    "Follow my blog on every mundane act I do all day."
    "I'll update Myspace and Twitter frequently! See what I do next"

    So yeah, if this is evolution, it can suck it.

    A thread that someone posted with an article that pretty much conveys that exact sentiment, was a decent read.
    I wish I had a comprehension gun.

    Good to hear!! Hope all went well after you found her. Yes there is good and bad to everything. As much as I'm not a fan of Facebook or social networking in general, it's not the medium that is the evil but how people use it.

    Kinda like the gun doesn't kill people. The person holding the gun kills people type of sentiment.

    I feel you, I may be on the internet but I never do all that face-book, twitter crap. I hate people knowing about me. I like being anonymous and unknown. Gives me space to be who I want to be, when I want to be it. Not someone everyone knows. My family is all non-tech savvy except for my bro. We do internet together. So I don't have to worry about my parents learning about the things I do on the net. I never use my real name, and never give out my info. (Yes I'm paranoid) I on the other hand love to know about other people. So I read other peoples profiles, facebooks etc just to get to know someone. Then I decide if I like them enough to interact or attempt that with them.

    PS: I will never follow anyone on facebook or twitter. :/
    The mind of man rests on a delicate balance between reality - the world of light, and the other darker world below the threshold of consciousness... and it is from this world of darkness which comes the evil destructive forces in man's nature

    That article's a good read, for sure. Kind of makes you wonder about where the society will be in a few years.

    I'm not a terribly big fan of online social networking, but it was incredibly useful just to connect with former classmates and co-workers while I searched for a new job.
