In the midst of a momentary reflection as to whether I wrote much when I was a kid, in addition to ruining my eyes by reading all the time, it just came to me what all this social networking is: passing notes in class. I did a lot of that, so I guess I did write.
We’re all supposed to be “on task” and paying attention to the teacher (boss, work, kids, whatever) but what we’re doing is passing around electronic notes. Can you imagine us voluntarily writing as much in school as we do on blogs or at Google+ and Facebook?
I don’t know if the teachers would be thrilled about what we were writing, but one or two might be pleased to see us scribbling away.
