Don’t Look Over There! Look At ME!!

Watch this.

Television is a drug. from Beth Fulton on Vimeo.

Except that it’s not just television anymore.

The same addictive, demanding nature could easily be ascribed to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Hulu, email, RSS, IM, FourSquare, mobile apps, or any of the exploding numbers of other sources demanding our attention.

Except that we no longer need to go over there to be distracted.

We carry it with us.

The challenge, of course, is finding the valuable little bits in that massive flow of crap.


Thanks to Clairvoy for the link (and for constantly giving me hell :-).

    Pretty sure the challenge isn’t “finding the valuable little bits in that massive flow of crap.” It’s more like figuring out that just because there’s a massive flow of crap passing by doesn’t mean you need to dive in. Maybe wetting your toe would suffice.

    Point taken. But one way or another, we really don’t have any choice but to figure out how to best navigate the flow for ourselves. Because, let’s face it, it’s not going away.
