Two messages in my inbox, a study in contrasts.
The first was a You-tube link to a video called Social Media Revolution. It's mostly a lot of statistics about how fast the "social media" (that means things like Facebook) is changing our world; how traditional newspapers are seeing a huge drop in readership; how marketing is all very much a part of this.
Right next in line was a link from Holy Experience (I get HE in my inbox) directing me to On Unplugging, a post at Out in the Stalks.
She's right: it's pretty funny to be sitting inside playing farming games on Facebook when you have the real thing right outside.
Or blogging about our kids instead of doing stuff with them.
Or always watching other people sing on You-tube instead of making music ourselves...
Where do we find ourselves in the middle of all this?
