For now, I want to talk about 'The Resistance'; the people who are opposed to technology and social networking possibilities it creates. I'm a person that strongly believes in people's expression of their lifestyles freely. What I have a problem with is the constant criticism of this expression which is sometimes baseless. I completely understand that some people could not be bothered to connect online but to label those who are interested in moving along with developments of this nature as superficial is pretty frustrating. No, people who blog are not narcissistic and self righteous; they wish to express feelings and experiences by 'sharing' with others. SHARING is the key word which is also what people on Twitter choose to do. SHARE information; while watching the Oscars, Royal Wedding Soccer Game. SHARE messages; which is what BBM is for. How may alerts to robbery have been received through this medium? I can only point to networks I use, because that is what I understand. I always wondered what could be so attracting in the whole SIMS movement, it is not my cup of tea. But the mere fact that I see people connecting on that front and having collections of SIMS games, there must be some relevance.
Don't get me wrong, I am in no way criticizing people from resisting/minimal interest in social networking and the likes. The problem I find is dismissing those who are participants/clients of these as superficial narcissistic humans merely seeking attention. It is ok to analyze, just not the extent that it is insulting. And I say, "Judge not, that you be not Judged" - Matthew 7:1
There's my #twocents.
In other news... I feel like Christian Louboutin needs to rethink his shoes. From the discomfort to the zero quality of the soles. after 20 seconds of wearing my shoes, the soles were scraped off. Even Aldo shoes don't scrape off that easily. Pshh!
Cheers to a lovely week people...And if you're in the States, have a lovely Memorial Day.
