Cell-Phone Spirituality

How devious a gadfly you are, John. Yet, I submit that having information about a person is no more knowing a person than watching them in silence and seeing only their actions in a brief window in time. I think that a person’s disclosure must come with the information in order for us to frame it in a context of the individual. As to the question of whether wirelessness enhances connectedness, it seems to me that what electronic communications has really done is to empower the individual to wield personal information with greater control in order to direct it, as one wills, to others. I see those who want to hide, now, are better able to hide and in a broader arena—even out in public. And those who want to communicate can do so with greater delivery, ease, and speed.

Loved this story. It brought back so many horrid memories of the Metro-North train. For instance, last month while just dozing off on the 6:04 to Fairfield, I was forced to listen to a sixty-something Indian gentleman with a very strong accent speaking as loudly as possible, (without it being considered yelling), for twenty minutes or so to a business contact. Homicidal impulses set in as I imagined stunning him from twelve feet or so with my own cell phone, then moving in for a fine bludgeoning with my laptop. I instead boxed my right ear repeatedly, (window side and out of view of any potentially concerned car mates), to drown out the noise and hopefully, have the pain take my mind off it.

Metro north

I sat near a woman w/a similar voice who talked office gossip.

I turned to her and said something like: "I have to thank you." "Yeah, my company was about to sign a $25M multi-year contract with yours, but now that I know all about how fucked up your company really is, I'll be sure and direct the business elsewhere." Combined with a couple of dropped names from her conversation, and she believed.

She turned white. It was hilarious. Very quiet after that.

Many people stopped to thank me on the platform at GC.
