It's been a while. Things get busy...

I'm still not 100% sure that our new communication technology is good for us. I mean, it helps us write to people, call people, pester people, poke people (in the cyber sense), and even ignore people much more easily than we could even 5 years ago. But on the other hand it can makes us lazy, shortsighted and indecisive.

I love texting as much as the next person, and facebook is awesome for chatting to overseas mates that I haven't seen in years, but I'm not trying very hard. My friends just pop up in my online world or beep in my inbox and then I can choose to interact with them or ignore them if I can't be bothered. Is that what being a friend is about?
