Transcript of Of course I want to talk to you! I just don't want to *talk* to you!

Of course I want to talk to you,
I just don't want to *talk* to you An exploration of where we've been in communication, where we are and perhaps where we're going Those who could write were few and and far between with their skills being revered by the rich and powerful; writing was seen as an art and great care was taken in its craft Communities have grown from places where you knew everybody who lived in your village and all the common man needed to communicate was language But man was not happy staying within the confines somebody else dictated for him, and he began to travel. With this travel to faraway lands came the necessity to let family and friends know of your well being, and the further he traveled and the longer he stayed away, the the closer he became to the written word http://www.homemoviesproject.wordpress.com/about
And as man traveled further and further away from his village, his children and grandchilden were no longer happy with the written word...they wanted to *see* the well being, the happiness and the prosperity Digital Artefact Submission for

Society began to wonder: as it becomes easier and easier to stay in touch with loved ones, and to meet and communicate to that stranger across the globe, are we really connecting to them? Or do we hide behind a screen allowing online personas to slowly take over our lives? As we shorten our words for efficiency and speed, do our messages get lost? And if this is a journey, where do we go from here? How will we connect with our village in the future? Despite their love of new technology and their seemingly constant text messaging, teens’ favorite way to communicate with their friends is still to talk with them face to face. As one teen girl noted, “It’s the only REAL way to be with each other. ‘Moments’ only happen in person.” About half (49%) of all 13- to 17-year-olds say they prefer to communicate with their friends in person, and half choose some other method. Texting is next highest, with a third of youth preferring that method (33%). Only 7% say their favorite way to communicate with friends is through a social networking site, and just 1% say Twitter. Only 4% of teens prefer talking on the phone as their favored way to communicate with friends. Could this be our future?
Are we destroying our own villages? http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/apr/13/mexico-language-ayapaneco-dying-out

Or are we allowing ourselves to under-estimate and make assumptions about our grandchildren and great-grandchildren and their understanding of village?



How do we deal with comments such as this:

What happens when the 'research' we do conflicts and sends us in opposite directions? Many teens who prefer face-to-face communication say the main reason they prefer it is simply because it’s more fun (38%), but others emphasize the personal nature of their dialogue, saying the main reason they prefer it is because they can understand what people really mean better in person (29%), feel more comfortable talking about personal things face to face (9%), or can talk more seriously in person (6%). Several teens mentioned the pleasures of laughing together in person; one said he preferred face-to-face communication because it’s “easier to share a laugh,” and another commented, “I enjoy seeing [my friends] laugh at my jokes.” http://www.synergyit.ca/blog/google-glasses-is-this-the-future/ http://2012.humanityplus.org/presenters/ http://www.twilio.com/blog/2012/10/what-is-the-future-of-communications-twiliocon-speakers-weigh-in.html Holographic Projection Technology:
