Comment on Too much chat room? by Luke

I think one of the issues that you are hinting at here seems to be that people are getting lazier when communicating face to face because we have been spoiled by the ability to say whatever we need to over texts, facebook messages, tweets, emails, etc. It’s easier not to introduce yourself to everyone in the room, so we don’t do it because social media has told us that it’s okay to keep your circle tight and only talk to people with whom your comfortable. Do you feel like that’s the case or am I doing what Oppenhimer/Hamilton were talking about when they were saying that we’re nostalgic for a time that never existed like we imagine it today.
