I LOVE IT!
I was visiting enviromom yesterday and she admitted she had never sent a text or a tweet, her cell phone seldom rings and she is not a fan of voicemail.
I will admit that I prefer face-to-face communication any day. But what if you can’t get that? What if your spouse is on the other side of the planet?
I remember my grandmother telling me stories about when my grandfather was in WWII. She would get one letter per month. ONE PER MONTH! And to top it off, the only way to know what was going on in the war was to sit and listen to the CBC News broadcast on “the wireless” (aka radio).
Today, my hubby is on the other side of the planet. We send 2-3 emails to each other EVERY DAY. We Skype 2-3 times per week. If he wants to know what I’m up to at any given time of day, he can look at my Twitter feed.
I wonder what my grandmother would have thought about today’s technology?
What about you? Do you feel that it is all too much? Do you think instantaneous communication is intruding on your life?
Sometimes I do, but I can turn it off. Grandma didn’t have that choice.
