Life before the computer

An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
A keyboard was a piano!

Memory was something that you lost with age
A CD was a bank account
And if you had a 3 1/2 inch floppy
You hoped nobody found out!

Compress was something you did to garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you unzipped anything in public
You'd be in jail for awhile!

Log on was adding wood to a fire
Hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a backup happened to your commode!

Cut - you did with a pocket knife
Paste you did with glue
A web was a spider's home
And a virus was the flu!

I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper
And the memory in my head
I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash
But when it happens they wish they were dead!

Facebook Forstyrrelser

Jeg har skrevet tidligere om Facebook, og menneskers tendenser til å hige etter sosiale medier.
Spesielt om det går ut over det virkelige sosiale livet dems.

Tsk Tsk

Nå har jeg blitt tipset om en artikkel, om Facebook.
Det er tydeligvis noe folk elsker å hate, og hater å elske.

Det hele startet med Daily Telegraph, som skrev om Facebook.

Danny Sullivan skriver på Search Engine Land om de ting som er forårsaket av Facebook, i følge søkemotorene Google, Yahoo, og Bing.

Er sosiale medier mer spennende enn sex?

Vi kjenner dem alle sammen. 
De som vilt plukker opp mobilen, hiver seg på dataen for å sjekke om noe har skjedd.
Men når det går utover samvær med de som fysisk er til stede?

Da må man kanskje spørre seg selv:

Den den spennende artikkelen som kikker på våre trender på nett og der ute, på Cnet

Og tenk deg om to ganger før du løper til mobilen fordi den lager lyd..
Hvor avhengig er du av sosiale medier?
