Good video and simple effective graphics on social media, human interaction and loneliness. It makes me feel guilty for sharing this as it makes fun of the "I share, therefore I am" mentality. I recently started to make an effort to be more "sociable", posting some things on G+, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc... which is not sociable. While I might continue to do those things, I need to get out more and so some silly fun inane things with friends, in real time.

Hmm, has the media turned against "social media"?

Interesting. I like what Flutterby has done for me over the years, but I'm finding myself overly engaged without as much payoff as I'd like with Facebook and Twitter. At times it becomes a compulsive checking, a hope that there's going to be conversation, but it never really pays off in the ways that older mechanisms (mailing lists, even Usenet, here) did.

Going to have to think more about how I relate to those things...
