Beyond being rude, what does it mean now that many of us are tracking multiple conversations in the presence of others? I am convinced that, etiquette aside, we are changed forever as our technology becomes a multidimensional representation of self. Parallel conversations inform the present while others are put on hold until the mind is able to grasp the answer we seek. The immediacy of technology now allows us to take our time with an answer-how ironic. The opportunity to involve others unaware. Who’s question or conversation is it anyway, and who’s answer?This is the tide of our newly intertwined conversations. One on one will never be the same as we jump into the river of our collective streamed consciousness and conversations.
