I was born in 1960 so I guess I am a 70's girl at heart. I think I have adapted pretty well to the 21st century as I love and often use cell phones and laptops and you tube and facebook. I am continually in awe of the virtually unlimited access to information provided by the internet. But I remember a time when I had to go to the library and rifle through microfiche to find information. I can't imagine what is must be like to live in today's "plugged in" world and to never have known anything different. It's a little scary. What also scares me is the way people, especially young people, delude themselves into thinking that the things they post on youtube are not public and not accessible to millions of people. After seeing this video I can see that some people can say intimate things to the vast millions (but really they are just talking to their cameras) but they can't just sit down and talk to another human being. What does this mean for the future of human relations?
