Insurance is a) a way to pay for the guy’s repairs that you ran into and b) a fight to actually get the payout you need because they’re always looking for ways to save money. It’s not a perfect comparison even if you stretch it.

And I didn’t want to stretch it. :-)

Well Jim, it’s funny that you ask about broadcasting mundane lives into cyberspace, and yet this blog serves to do just that. LoL.

Facebook has been great in helping me connect with old friends, but I don’t use it as a primary means of communication.

And of course. Questions. Lots of questions.

Comment on Digital Identity Crisis by James Hillier http://outsidethefire.org/?p=291&cpage=1#comment-131 Mon, 05 Apr 2010 19:28:12 +0000 http://outsidethefire.org/?p=291#comment-131 Chad – Insightful and delivered with your trademark humour.

My lovely better three quarters was recently coerced into opening a Facebook account, just so she could participate in online games with some of her female buddies.
I helped her set it all up and the very next morning there were 8 emails from people wanting to be her ‘friend’…..3 from people she did know and 5 from others we had never heard of.
It turned out she didn’t enjoy the games anyway and had no use for the social interaction role of Facebook…so we immediately closed the account.

The whole episode got me to thinking. I saw such inane comments on there (Facebook), the response most elicited in me was…who cares!!
So I began pondering the implications. Have people gotten so lonely they actually need to broadcast their thoughts and details of their mundane lives in cyberspace? Don’t they have anyone in their lives to share this with? Is there something in the way society is developing which is inhibiting normal (verbal) communication?

No answers mate….just questions.

Cheers…Jim
