Plugged in…tuned out ;)
Here is a twist to the 21st Century. Internet cafés really are just that…cafés that serve a cup o’wifi with a dash of free access…Being a native from the SF Bay Area, I currently live overseas, and coming home to San Francisco is always great yet always changing, however this last visit was shocking! How could my cute little coffee shop on the corner, right off Haight Street, where I have met so many good people, look like this! Everyone plugged in, but not plugged into each other. Will Internet dating actually turn into two people sitting in proximity to each other but separately browsing their own hardware while comingling shared findings on the web? I guess I just prefer my coffee shops filled with human communication and exchangez of soft whispers to exchanges of soft-ware and plugs in my ears. I’m just sayin….
