Wow, 2012 is going to be exciting--rather--2012 is already exciting for IG and Diplo... The latest? A blog post, Google...stop thinking for me! by Mary Murphy, which brings together some very important and controversial hot topics from this week: see Are enabling technologies ‘neutral’ by Aldo Matteucci as well. And Thursday we have an interactive Webinar Internet governance in 2012: What can we expect? at 1400 GMT. Hope to see you there! Cheers for 2012. Ginger
So true, Trevor. Since getting my mobile phone, I don't have to remember phone numbers, dates, appointments, or calculate in my head. My conversations are becoming increasingly 'virtual'. I see people on public transport, all wired up and plugged in, with little or no interaction. I wonder if social media, while bringing us all together, is actually driving us further and further apart.
True, Trevor, but there is a very positive flip side: so many photos, stories, histories of small groups, and even languages are being recorded and saved, which would otherwise be lost. I wonder if we will ever learn balance?
