Take the leap.

Losing the connection

20120508-094435.jpgLast night I was trying to make a wifi call to a friend’s cell here in DC, but for the life of us we couldn’t hear one another. Since it has been 15 years since we last spoke, and that, too in person, this scattered dribble of digitized bits was especially annoying.

Would have been easier, I texted, to just pick up a phone, had there been one, to call your land line.

He texted back “Srsly!”

What do you think? Is it easier to have meaningful reconnections with technologies in place today? Or harder, because they’re less immediate, personal, as say, a letter or that landline call? –DK
