Has ego and self-absorption always been at the heart of socialization, or is this something we've fed and bloated into being, and named facebook, twitter, and myspace? Or even blogs for that matter. I mean, how self-important do we think that we are that the world wants to read what we have to write, or what we did two seconds ago that's 160 characters or less? Why do we think the internet, and every person we've friended, wants to know that we just did the dishes? or took the dog out? or sorted the laundry?
How much of our lives do we want to publicize? Is it just a bid for attention from a culture that's been starved? Are we all just suffering from the fact that we didn't get enough love as children?
I'm not sure if I even agree with everything I just wrote or that I have any idea what I'm talking about, but I had to ask the questions.
