The explosure and rampant growth of the varieties of internet communication through blogs, "Facebook" and "Twitter",
to name but a few, underscores the certainty that we humans are hungry for the ability to speak our truths, communicate
our beliefs and experiences and share them with others. We all have something to say. We all have something going
on. Nothing never happens.
We all want someone to listen and to hear what we are saying, and to know what we are doing. Perhaps the hierarchy of
needs Abraham Maslow developed some years ago could be updated and reinforced/expanded by more legitimately appreciating and
recognizing the fulfillment of needs these new modes of communication are providing.
Andy Warhol no doubt would have found the revolution in communication modalities stunning and rife with fertile soil
for artistic exploration. Not only does everyone now have their "15 minutes of fame" but they can gain something
like fame everytime they tweet. How many "followers" do you have? The line between the famous and the
little known blurs in this realm and following the goings on of both provides some sort of kindred friendship among
all on Twitter. The process enhances a communal feeling at some level.
Something to say is so basic. Someone to listen is so necessary.
Try Twitter...do you have something to say?
Keep writing. :}
