Hello, nice to talk to you, well, at you, considering where we are. This is my first blog post ever, anywhere and I have no idea what to talk about. I was encouraged to potentially embarrass myself by a fellow twitterer @PeterHobbs1, so if anyone is to blame, it's him. So what do you want to hear about? Should I bore you with what I have done today; get up, go to the toilet, make coffee, blah, blah, blah. Don't worry I won't go on. Why don't I just talk about this wierd scenario where we're all talking at one another and will never know who, if anyone is listening and where could it go in the future.
I guess this is less embarrassing than being in a group and you go to talk and no one acknowledges you have said anything. If no one reads this I am the only one who will know. This feels like a brainstorming session where I'm jotting down ideas, and I guess it is to some extent. Am I losing you yet, hello, hello? Oh good, you're still there (I think). The last twenty years has seen us get to this stage in massive strides, so how will we be communicating in another twenty?
I can see us having computer chips in our heads that link directly with others. Imagine you are going about your normal business, shopping, sleeping, breaking in to someone's house and a friend yells in your head "Hello!". OMG people will be jumping around all over the place and the incidence of heart attacks will skyrocket and more burglars will get caught: it's hard to be silent when there's voices in your head. It would be a good tool for discplining children: "If you don't stop fighting with your brother I am going to sing the Macarana non stop, mind to mind for the next half an hour". Anyway I'm sure I don't make sense to everyone and that's ok because you've probably worked out by now that I am A) crazy or B) stupid.
Ok, I think I've gone on for long enough and if this goes badly I will never blog again. Thanks for joining me, cheers.
