The inner ring then the outer ones.
We learn to trust, to collaborate.
Great things cannot be achieved alone.
That’s why the President tweets. That’s why we tweet.
Do you know someone who needs our services?
Or some place who is hiring so our students can apply.
We need those links and those leads.
People need people.
The social graph keeps getting denser. Pretty soon, the net (shaped in our image) will be big enough to carry us to safety *unlike our social safety net which is in need of mending).
New world order, fashioned after our image and likings.
I have come across issues and images I would never have come across on my own.
Thanks to the net economy and taxonomy; yes, I can.
Let’s see if Twitter will tip the election (Kennedy election was a close call as well).
I suspect that it will.
We are not back in 2000. We are in 2012.
And we have made it thus far pass Labor Day.
Penn State lost 2 games out of the gate.
And the economy, especially in Europe, is still puttering.
Something is to be done but then everything has been done.
Together we can. Can’t we.
More than ever before, we are socially connected.
More than ever before, we are doing worse.
All the tools in the world All the help in the world.
Yet still stuck in lower gear.
If we apply the five stages of grief to the situation, we are now somewhere pass Anger and Denial.
When people compromised, they ask for less in return.
And when they are in depression, nothing gets done. Hitting the blank wall. Everything shuts down.
Socially connected or not, let’s remind one another to quickly Accept (acknowledge the Elephant in the room), and move one. Get out and vote . Get some fresh air. Go travel and spend money. Fall is a good time to catch up on some spending and yes, reading (Tom Wolfe is coming out with his voluminous piece again). Turn the chapter to “your life 2.o”.
Learn from Penn State, even with its first two losses. Ouch!
