Most of us are busy getting ready for the holiday break, and I contemplated over probably the most overlooked part of society to most modern technology people – wishing holiday greetings.
The issue, simply, is that today’s technologies interfere with social communications amongst individuals.
I’m ready to sit down and write holiday cards to my friends and colleagues, and I’ve had a growing concern of the fact that most of us are disconnecting more and more with one another. Some of you may wonder “Why don’t you send them an e-mail?” or “Post a message on Facebook where they can see it” or tweet, text,…. you see where this is heading. If I sit down and think of you, my friend, and take the time to write you a letter, and ensure that it fits your taste and ensure that it gets to you in time, if not by hand delivery, that letter means something way more than any modern age youtube clip, lolzcat, or animated dancing hamster could ever mean. It means that I wanted to communicate with you. This blog’s intent is to share information that I, for some unknown reason, feel like sharing with anyone that may find relevant in their lives. But, if that anyone is not a stranger, I’d take the time to sit down with them and have some lunch, stop by to chat on a break, or write a letter when afar. There’s something very nostalgic to think that people had the forethought and effort and time to put into inter-communications with others than we do now. So, to my strangers, Happy Holidays! I take it you'll not be disappointed.
