It’s good to be connected. Can you imagine living through the current pandemic without the option of immediate communication? That’s how good we have it. We can hear and see just about anyone we want to listen to or look at, anytime, anywhere. We’re dealing with real-life human social withdrawal, but how bad would it be if this weren’t 2021? We’re so connected.
Of course, all these communication options sometimes seem a bit much, even overwhelming. So many options. I can remember thinking that Dick Tracy’s two-way wrist radio was about as far into the future as anyone could imagine. Today, he’d be laughed out of the department. (Though his detective skills would remain sterling, surely.)
