From Clive Thompson, NYT: I'm So Totally, Digitally Close to You
I feel beyond postmodern in posting this. A handful of my Facebook friends are under 18 (cousins, you perverts), and I wonder about them: while we of the over-30 crowd marvel at our miraculous, Facebook-facilitated, virtual grade school reunions, will they ever know what a strange feeling it is? Will they ever know what it's like to lose touch with their friends? Losing touch will necessarily be a more concerted effort from here on out.
