Social Media

I don't have a Facebook page and I don't Twitter. I've spent my life avoiding random and meaningless social contacts and why should I change now, just because we've got a technology that enables them?  I see people are beginning to complain about how much time these things eat and how they're the death of proper, slow, worked-out thinking. Well, yes, of course. 

I'm not a technophobe. I understand how useful Twitter and Facebook are as tools of revolution. I hate them not because they're new but because- like the telephone- they intrude.
