Brief Thoughts on XKCD: The Pace of Modern Life

Category:Communications Processes,Infosec Communicator,Leadchange,techcomm Tags : 

This XKCD comic is an entertaining look into the perception of the changes in communication brought on by the increased pace of society–more than 100 years ago!¬†It reminds me of reading¬†The Victorian Internet: The Remarkable Story of the Telegraph and the Nineteenth Century’s On-line Pioneers, an interesting look at the change brought by the completion of the Trans-Atlantic cable. It also reminds me of Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, wherein the characters are bemoaning the loss of the Golden Age, no matter in what century they live.

Do you miss the “Good Old Days” when the pace of life was slower? (Of course, the length of life was shorter.)

Yes, I’m aware of the irony in the post title. Had I fewer distractions…
