I love this piece on people, friends and real world stuff that matters. It’s something I noticed at likemind this morning. Most people were looking at each other and talking, not looking down at their phones, laptops or taking snaps of the latte art to post on Twitter. I’m as guilty as the next man, but I’m trying hard not to let my desire to capture stuff ruin my natural desire to hang out and communicate with clever interesting people.

Anyhow. Take it as you will, but remember that the web is not you and it’s not me. The web is just a braindead platform for moving information around, but it’s not your actual friends.
Talking about meeting people who speak in sentences and have complicated lives and make great things and care about a lot of the same stuff you do. That’s the thing.
