……..you’re becoming more impatient.
This blog is about identity – with a focus on “becoming.” Then there’s this underlying current of how technology or new media has an impact on how we are “becoming.”
I was watching a news segment this and there was a commercial about how slow our internet is. It’s not slow. It’s grown exponentially in the past 20 years. Even “slow” internet is super fast compared to the dial up days. Technology has made us impatient. My dvr has definitely made me impatient.
I get annoyed when I text, and I don’t get a text back almost right away.
I sigh when my laptop boots up. I used to have a desktop that ran Windows XP that would take like 10 minutes to load (and that was last summer).
I clean my macbook so that pages load faster.
I upgraded my internet speed (because it was free to upgrade for 6 months), and it still takes a minute to download my podcast.
Here’s the deal. Don’t blame internet speeds on your discomfort. Next time you see a commercial or hear someone complain about the slow internet speeds, patiently tell them of their impatience.
I love #firstworldproblems. How are you impatient? Please share that with me – hurry!
