One word stood out to me in respect to our electronic age in your vlog, and it was 'disembodied'. Started me thinking about how many science fiction movies and predictions of the future of humankind show our ultimate state to be 'pure thought'. Communicating with thought, brains in jars connecting only by thought, or wires. I sometimes look at my laptop screen and think how weird it is, but there are other times I think of how great it would have been to have this technology when I was a kid. Maybe I wouldn't have felt so lonely as I often did.

Regarding Farmville, I played for awhile then stopped. I fear for my cows, chickens and sheep..

Digital Pet?  LOL  Well of course there is. 

How about a Digital Friend - you load them to your computer and tell them all your secrets.  They laugh when you need and cry when you need - they can drink virtual coffee with you and their computer chip retains previous conversations so they can ask the right question.  They can tell you all the things you need to hear, tell you how wonderful you are and how those jeans make your ass look perfect..etc.  Shit, they can take care of your virtual pet if you should actually venture out into the real world.  What am I saying, you could just download them to your phone and take them with you.

You look around the cafe and everyone has phones propped up talking to their virtual BFF.  Ah the future. ;0)


Now I feel bad that I got my Niece a Magic Kit and a Card Trick Book - I could have sprung for a virtual life partner...LOL

Enjoy the Holiday and Snowboarding.  Eat a lot, sleep a lot and because you are Syd, video a lot - Tis the season for treat induced coma's.

I'll be in one soon enough.

Merry Christmas.

Man, of these years I would love to come hang with you at Christmas. I know what you're saying about the scary vibe in the stores. I hate it. I do everything I can to avoid shopping ( even grocery shopping ) after December 1st.

That interactive cartoon pet is fucking creepy and I believe it is actually dangerous. It will give children a VERY distorted view of what certain kinds of attention invoke in other living things. I'll bet a dollar to a doughnut that incidents of animal attacks ( provoked by miniature humans ) will rise in the next few years.

,..and yeah, just what the world needs,..aNOTHER T.V. babysitter. GODDESS forbid people should actually have to look after and teach their own spawn. I'm sorry that sounds so dark but turnkey kids grow up to be turnkey people. Where's the humanity in that ?!?

The "100" question immediately made me aware that I would be among the first batch to be passed over because of my disease so if ANYone has the right to be offended, it would be people like me with hereditary diseases and I was fine with it. I'm baffled as to how anyone could construe it as a "bait" for the right.
