Spending New Year’s Eve watching live TV. I’m struck by how this format, based on a shared experience at the same moment in time, is a relic from a previous media era. After a few hours, I feel dumber. I’m left with the feeling that I could live the rest of my life and not see any live television again, and I’d be better off for it.
Also, conversation is kind of a lost art. Coloring apps, on the other hand, seem the flavor of the moment. Perhaps the lesson to be learned here is that there’s time to read, or do other things of value, but you have to choose them.
