I came across this brilliant TED talk by Renny Gleeson a few weeks back and it made me very thoughtful about how our social environment has changed over the years. Due to technology & social networks many of us are no longer inside our relationships but outside looking in. No doubt this would have occurred in the past but now technology & the environment support us in viewing/sharing our relationships rather than enjoying & participating in them. Check out Renny’s talk & let me know in the comments how you feel about his perspective. Its funny & enjoyable to watch whilst making a statement about our technological social life.
Maybe we are living the geek’s version of being social and in relationship? As you know a high percentage of geeks are intraverted???? So we may now be living an introverted extroversion???? See an old post of mine that was published in the book Blog08 extrovert and introvert matches.
