Digital Confusion


I suspect the problem here is primarily generational. How the hell can anybody, especially old folks, keep up with the evolution of the cyber world we now live in?

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

  1. One problem may be you have at least one generation now who have little to no recollection of what having a face-to-face, true to life conversation is. One can describe it, but ‘smart phones’ have effectively removed the desire for many of this current generation to consider something so ‘old fashioned’ as talking to someone worthy of their time…?

      1. Yes, it is, but I’m of the mind nothing is without purpose. Sometimes that ultimate purpose is hidden from us until much later.
        I dare to predict our current fascination with all things digital and networked will eventually fade. The current ‘younger generation’ will one day become the old, pondering what their children and grandchildren find obsessively fascinating too.

I'd love to hear from you
