digital amigoships

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« It is common to read of people lamenting about the downsides of transporting so much social interaction to digital.  People speak of a sense that we’ve lost something.  Though I trust we’ve lost something we’ve created opportunities like my amigoship with Sonu.  Sonu has accepting my open invitation to have a conversation captured and posted on youtube.  The transportation to digital revealed the movement of people from social participants to social spectators, and there is a hunger for spectator events.   This is my opportunity with Sonu.  Seems we both like to have spontaneous voice interaction, and it seems both of us are comfortable being recorded and having spectators .  I have a similar opportunity with Adam though he’s not a blogger, and he is not under self-imposed pressure to relentlessly share.  I am . . . . . I have reason to believe Sonu is too.  Sonu commented about noise, and I’m not sure if he meant on his end or my end.  My thoughts: this vid captures audio from a busy train dock, and yet the audio quality is well above my minimum quality standards.  I am happy with my 96th Street recording space, and I have reason to believe it’s perfect imperfections are what people hunger for.  If Sonu hears the vid, then we’ll be passed the noise concern — maybe.  I’ve talked to my friend, Vidya, when he’s mobile in Visakhapatnam, and the traffic noise to me is awesome.  In time maybe Sonu and I can talk with me at 96th Street and him mobile in the traffic of the very crowded busy streets of Bangalore. . . . Time will tell. »»  about me  302-990-2346  twitter  nearlincoln@hotmail.com  contact us
