Immersion

I can remember when I first heard about the internet.  The concept was a little overwhelming for me initially.  The “world wide web”, they called it.  The Information Superhighway. There was a clip this morning on the Today Show of Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel discussing this new thing called the internet.  Hilarious.

We’ve come a long way since then, I’ll tell you. We are immersed in “online” everything: social networking, email, texting, blogs, business, entertainment, email…. heaven forbid….. blogs!  We are wired. Maybe too wired. People have begun the migration away from books and newspapers. Kids don’t know how to read or write cursive anymore. (Many have trouble spelling. U no what i meen?)   There’s even an app now that will take a text message and convert it to an audio clip, so you can literally hear it on your cellular device.

Years ago, that was known as an actual phone call.   One ringy-dingy.  Call me.

    EXCELLENT video. Excellent.
    It is this kind of “pompous and well-spoken knowledge of history” that draws many people in to these candidates. She is very polished indeed. But so were the old snake-oil salesmen. Then it always astounds me when people defend “those” kinds of “recollections of history” as…… “All history is someone’s interpretation.” lol

    Tell that to the millions of enslaved Africans. Tell that to six million Jews. Yeah, keep talking Michele Bachmann.

  2. Great video Jeff, what’s sad is that the public needs a newscaster to tell them that those statements aren’t true and that she could say them and believe they’re true. YIKES !!!! There’s still discrimination going on over race, religion, national heritage and the aristocracy. Not to mention sexual preferance. Makes me crazy.
