Yes I do like and have a cell phone. Well actually it is one of them old flip phones. So many tell me I need to get an update.
But I also think a lot of unneeded communication has come our way with the technology boom. For example I really wonder how essential is Twitter. I wonder how much of this "stuff" is now controlling and owning us. Everywhere you look you see it. I think every woman I see on morning travels is talking on a cell phone. Now that one will get me in trouble....but true...
"We are in great haste to construct a magnetic telegraph from Maine to Texas; but Maine and Texas, it may be, have nothing important to communicate."
Henry David Thoreau
To quote my friend Phillip Morrison: "Life is not about how fast we live or how thoroughly we master its complexities."
I think a lot of nothing is often being said today by electronic means.
