You know, I was thinking, back in the 80s, people werent online, everyone went outside to talk, knock on a friends door, hook up for console gaming or board games etc.
Today its mostly a network of cell phones, email addresses, and usernames. If you watch any Sci Fi type Anime, you would know what I mean, a good example is "Chobits" where robots can do email, phone, gaming, internet etc.
Not that I mind this change I kinda like it where people go around the world, known by their username, known by their knowledge and exp. Where technology is expanding and where its more to the point where we can network easier.
I wont say everything is better, like viruses, wars etc.. but for the community wise, it is nice. I am a loner anyways, so I rather be at a PC doing my thing and posting and learning anyways etc.
Just feels like sometimes the real world is turning into a world like you see in a JP Anime or so. Anyone else agree? Something appealing about that lifestyle as it is. Heh.. lotta options too. =)
I mean the other day I noticed alone, my username, I have had for 8 years now, thats a LONG time if you think about it. Where usernames can have a history, and be known on the net. Around the world! Not just where you live or even your state. Its almost like people will know you even tho they never met you. Kinda scary and interesting in a way.
Least going by usernames is something YOU choose to be called. Think of the Matrix.. The names were GIVEN to them. "Mr.Anderson" etc. However in the real world. He is called "Neo" which is the name he choose to be called etc.
Same goes in todays world for those who have found a name for themselves.
Anyone else notice this?
Dont know about the future too much.. but truth be told. If I could choose one anime to follow, Ill go with Chobits and have myself a mini Sumomo. =D hehe. (Even tho.. if your good, you can program a PPC to have voice command, etc, guess thats why I love my PDA and Cellphone, I have the whole network and my pc at home from ANY system you give me.)
