When was the first moment you realized that your computer had made you a slave?
or have you not realized it yet?
or do you think that you have escaped?
I realized it when I first began to use AOL … remember AOL? online chat?
Every time I would walk away from my computer it would let me know I had another message.
I thought of this today as Facebook, ‘blinged’ me to let me know I had a new message. That sound drives panic into me now because I always think it is the sound telling me that my battery is dying!
Yet, when we hear that sound, we MUST come running musn’t we? Just in case we might be missing something important.
It is why I usually keep my computer on mute.
It is also why my computer dies on me because my battery runs out.
