I about spit out my Cherry Coke Zero when I saw today’s Dilbert comic… It’s so me.
Being a tech head, I’m plugged in all day long between work, side jobs, email, research, and school. Heck, I didn’t need to buy books for school because the curriculum is completely online – books, quizzes, tests, even the class evaluation at the end. Sadly, this is becoming the norm. People would rather spend hours playing World of Warcraft (online game) or browsing Facebook/MySpace than being outside or having physical human contact. My post a few days ago depicts an episode that shows me falling into this trap too. Whether it’s small group or a walk in the park, I think we all need to get out and have more contact with people and this amazing world that’s been created for us.
