When my mother was pregnant with me, my father used to put little speakers on her belly. I have no memories. I don't need them. The music is already there.

And it's absolutely beautiful.

I just wish boomer took in enough air to finish his sentences. He always gets out like 4 words and then sounds like he's going to die

I hate to be (and am generally not) one of those people that complains about Facebook redesigns because I feel like most of the arguments are made by people too rigid to step back and take stock of the motivations behind these changes.

However, I am one of those people today. And I don't really take issue with change in general. I take issue with the being socially boxed in. I don't want a string of "You like this, you might be interested in..." and "You're friends with this guy, look at what he's doing" Constructing these closed social bubbles is the opposite of what we need to be doing.

Uber-customization is fun but it takes most of the discovery out of life. There will certainly be things in life that I won't be exposed to. No individual can open himself to the entirety of human experience before his existence is blinked out. However, that individual severely limits his exposure when he outlines the terms of what is aggregated to him.

I think that's what bothers me the most. Granted, I am posting this through a social network and I certainly understand the irony of that in itself. I guess I just feel that this place (at least) for the time being provides an opportunity to connect with people around me that I find relevant and does so without dictating my interests to me.

Leaving seems to be the easiest, quickest and most effective way to push back but also the least likely. I think the sad thing is that people do realize that it is on us to push back but they feel the most effective way is to write up a status that shares their belief. Its like our conversation for example, we're discussing ways to push back but we're not actually doing anything. We might as well be having this conversation in a sound proof room because the chances of someone outside of this conversation reading, caring and doing something are extremely low. In fact the chances of any of us doing something about it are extremely low. I think what has happened is that companies like Facebook and Google have made people think their services are needs and not wants. Its a luxury to be on Facebook, your social life will survive without it. That being said, if you don't like Facebook, leave Facebook.

I'm all for expanded discussions. Maybe I'm turning into a total loser but I've had a lot of fun having these "adult" conversations.

Who am I kidding I was a total loser before this.

Agreed, Vinny scored like 30 goals for me last season in NHL 11.

New discussion-

I found out via Facebook that an old friend from my hometown lost his father. Finding out through social media is disconcerting enough, but I was a bit taken aback while looking through the messages.

While, I'm certainly not criticizing the right of people to express condolences digitally, I found the use of emoticons and the hearts, the misspellings, and the use of 'omg' downright insincere.

We're still learning about this medium, and to this point we've done a lot of celebrating. Graduation, jobs, engagements, babies. Everything seemed kosher.

But how should we deal with death?

I remember once posting something of a depressing message and several people responsing publicly. The only one that felt heartfelt was in a private message. Edicit is weird in social media since there is no way to express the tone. Smilies and acronyms don't create it at all.
