Over the past few months, every time I post on Facebook or Twitter I begin to think that all I am doing is my small part in helping to push mankind back down the evolutionary scale. Ten minutes of the equivalent of watching the paint dry. I watched an interview of Aaron Sorkin the other day and he pointed out that Twitter and Facebook are really just a performance. I think that is very true. He said that socializing on the internet is to socializing as reality TV is to reality.
The sound of people talking to anyone and everyone except the person they’re standing next to. It seems more and more like we have gone a very long way for very little.
