I much prefer blogging to social medja. At least if you shout into a cave the sound carries. It’s an odd preoccupation the idea of “collecting” people who selectively converse. It’s like sitting at a massive picnic and having to walk among people dotted between the trees and none of them have faces that look at you.

And yet it is almost a great leak for if you half know someone or don’t know them you can acquire some pertinent info from their tweets or facebookery about their daily life and by the time you next set eyes on them a ton of ground work has been covered. So in essence it can speed up the process of “knowing”.

But how much can you really know if you do not take the time to invest in actual conversation rather than selective conversation and the odd jibber when the subject takes a person. And the least engaging subjects seem to take people to the top of the hill!
