A digital species

"We must embrace both signal and noise in all its forms."

I have come to believe that man has evolved into a very digital species.

There are some very persuasive arguments to support this argument, but I shall not go into any of them. Just this...

The other day I was trying to get past a rather well-built colleague who was standing at the doorway. I said "excuse me" and "Hello" and "hey" and other such things as might have grabbed the attention of any gent/ lady in the pre-technology days. But we are in the A.D. of technology and the tall, well-built gent remained rooted to his spot at the doorway. And then, I had a this really inspirational thought bubble and I said "Beep Beep." You will just have to believe me when I say the gent quickly jumped out of the way, apologetically and it did seem as if he had just seen me.

Ta DA.

And there, digitised ladies and gentlemen of the blog world, I rest my case!

surprised @ viji !!!

I thght gals were always on the mobile ignoring their BFs (if its not their BFs, who else are they *me wonders*, ok no offense meant here ) I sometime wonder if all they want to do is talk on phone....and here I'm hearing guys ignoring girls....Pollatha ulagam ada..
BTW, according to creation's
rule #99
Guys will always be intrigued by the working of mechanical (digital???) items (hows and whys) while the gals will always be intrigued by the looks and purpose of the same and NEVER SHALL THE TWAIN MEET !!!

Let technology advance! If not for technology, we wouldnt be doin most of the things we do today :) For starters, lets say blogging!
Where to draw the line, seems to be the biggest problem. Forget the line ppl, let it jus advance. Ppl who wanna mis use it, will misuse it anyways, so why bother ! :)
And Ramya, lol -> about the 'beep beep' thing... :-) Guess u would make a good mobile phone ;)

"Beep Beep", that must have been the ring tone that he heeps for his Boss, or worse still, his wife..No wonder it brought him back across the digital divide...wotsay? (or shud it be "wotemail?")

Yeah well, sometimes even when I am asleep, I have this bramai (illusion) that my cell phone is ringing! So much so that it makes me lose my peace.
