I read an article this morning in the Daily Mail which is so anti-internet it doesn't warrant an ABCe-boosting link. But it's so marvellously positioned that I just had to share some highlights.
It's titled: "Too much information! From Facebook to Twitter, WHY do so many think we care about the minutiae of their tedious lives?" I'm not sure which bit of this feature about tedious social media was more amusing. The fact that the author has weaved her entire argument around promoting her book, or the way that she calls messages sent over the internet 'virtual messages' like they don't exist or don't get to their destination. A coffee with a neighbour is as fulfilling as 1,000 virtual messages, she says.
Still, my grandmother would completely agree: messages sent online are not real! And how tedious this online communication is. Bore off Daily Fail. Now, off to find this author's book.
