At the risk of sounding
like an out of touch troglodyte,
I’d like to encourage
connoisseurs of technology
to consider what I say
in spite…
of their love for all things digital.

If the face you pay the most attention to
is really a screen,
you’re at risk for someday looking up
and finding no human beings.

People are difficult,
we’re pretty much all in beta,
and many of us are not that compatible,
and lack the latest updates.

However, though the risks are there,
the rewards for really being present
for the people you know
and don’t know yet,
are greater.
