New York Times – The Flight From Conversation

Howdy Toasters!

Interesting piece from the New York Times for some wiseness from the toaster.

“We live in a technological universe in which we are always communicating. However with constant communication have we sacrificed conversation for mere connection?”

It’s relevantly timed for me too, over recent weeks of running (usually late) from one place to another, or sat at home studying, being lazy /tired etc knowing i can be in touch with everyone through a tweet, a pin, a grind a link, a text or a call i’m not as motivated to be sponateously social …. it’s led me to wonder how in touch i really am at times.. and to what level.

The juxtaposition of ultimate connectedness while being physically and in some cases emotionally disconnected or absent is somewhat of a paradox to me.
