For my answer, I’ll need to make a parameter: grown up social time. At work I talk with 10 year olds all day, it’s my job. I’ve heard of teaching kids in a lab scenario where they send the teacher electronic messages and such but at my school we’re not there yet. So, most of my days M-F I am having analog conversation with real, small people in person. But then there are the other times after work when I’m not playing the teacher role. Let’s take a look at those conversations.
Still, I am talking analog with my daughters on the way home. Not so much with my son because he’s 17. I catch up on the day with my wife. After that, I am composing something or writing comments on other blogs. I get to know people online this way. It is a slower way to get to know someone but once the back and forth is flowing, it feels like you’ve known them in real life. So, as you can see I think my analog to digital conversation is still slanted to the analog. I think as long as people need people in proximity to people, as in school, analog conversation will always tip the scale.
