Shun social media? You might get lost or left in the past.

Heard from 2 friends who shun social media:

"I don't want to lose you, what's your mailing address?"

"I don't want you to get too far in the past that I can't catch up with you in the present."

Who's in danger of being lost, who's being left in the past?

It struck a nerve on Facebook...

I feel connected with both of these people when we do meet up.

All we're missing is the daily details and the months and years of lost opportunities to act on them.

Tending Relationships In The Technological Age: Multiminding

My worlds colliding -- no, integrating! -- at Estee Solomon Gray's Mmindding Symposium on what she calls agile attention management. It's a movement toward our reality as relational beings, supported by the technologies of today. We can do this. We want to do this. We are doing this. The talks were by academics who study things like proxemics and chronemics. The audience was filled with people who are carving out lives and work in just this post-industrial age reality. We're returning to our natural rhythms.
