I hope a kind of homeostatis kicks in
as people begin to tire of social networking and gadgetry, and we can gradually return to a sane world of real world interactions. (He says whilst posting on an internet forum!)
But maybe it won't. Maybe that's the future and luddites like me will be left behind.
I'm curious about the mindset of a lot of twitter users and highly active facebook status-updaters. Do they think they have something interesting and unique to say- that they are special somehow? Or are they fully aware that they are just an insignificant crumb in an infinite pile of crumbs, and tweeting is their way of avoiding that painful fact?
