Some time ago a couple of friends urged me to join facebook. Admittedly, I’m often negligent of this blog, much less logging in and writing what I’m doing on facebook. So it was with some reluctance that I finally made the jump and created not only a facebook account, but a twitter account as well.
And the digital global interconnectedness experiment continues… 🙂

And on facebook, I’ve done not much yet… but when the mood strikes, I’ll log in there and maybe post something amusing…here’s the link:
One thing we’ve all probably noticed is that the bulk of things posted by most people are just everyday stuff…on the practical level, not all that thrilling — but the whole idea of instant connection that can potentially connect humans in new ways is exciting (in an social anthropological sort of way).
And just today I read an article called “Get Smarter” with an interesting point of view about technological tools and human evolution, (one of my favorite subjects – OK, possibly my favorite subject).
“But here’s an optimistic scenario for you: if the next several decades are as bad as some of us fear they could be, we can respond, and survive, the way our species has done time and again: by getting smarter. But this time, we don’t have to rely solely on natural evolutionary processes to boost our intelligence. We can do it ourselves.”
If you’re like me, it’s thought provoking and well worth the read:
