Lucy’s tangents

Thank you Lucy for some wonderful, wacky ideas. I feel I could really let my imagination loose on some of these. unfortunately I have rather more mundane stuff to see to first.  Hopefully come back to this later.

In the meantime, do you think that texts and tweets etc really keep you in touch with the inner person of your friends and acquaintances or is it just their gadgets in touch with your gadgets?
Can you envisage anything as abstract as ‘connections’ having a war against each other; soul to soul connections fighting back against the invasion of gadget to gadget connections?
And what about the connections between individuals and their own gadgets?

    I think gadgets can be a plus for communication if used in addition to & not in place of.
    Sometimes gadgets make it easy to keep in touch in today’s busy fast paced way of life too.

  2. I certainly don’t doubt their usefulness for sharing information – time to meet, for example, particularly if trains are delayed or something but I’m still to be convinced that much of the heart or soul can be conveyed this way. Even a phone conversation loses something compared with actually sitting down with a person.
