A life, online.

I’m working for a think tank at the moment, and today I attended a two-hour info session on the use of twitter to promote progressive ideas.

As I fidgeted in my seat and watched the panelists attempt the ridiculous task of tweeting while talking about tweeting, I thought a lot about how our lives have moved online. As a writer and a photographer, the computer is my best friend and my worst enemy; it feeds my creativity while it eats it, and the more the internet allows me to feel connected to people around the world, the more it makes me feel isolated and alone. The more time I spend in front of the screen, the more I feel that the computer controls me, and not the other way around.

Anyone else relate?
