How do we find balance in sharing and connecting on-line?
There are so many beautiful things about the internet... I have to say- I am grateful for the sense of community I feel on facebook, blogs, email (haven't yet found the joy of twitter..).
But, at the same time, all of these can also bring this sense of pressure, need to share, guilt for not sharing enough, insecurity of sharing too much.. feelings of inadequacy.
How can we find balance in this world of excess information- of constant opportunity for connection- which can, ironically, lead to isolation?
How do we find rhythm and balance?
How can we utilize and be a part of this incredibly connected world community, this web of life, words, pictures, friendships, information, humor, and support, without getting trapped by the 'if it didn't get posted to the internet then it didn't really happen' mindset?
How can we maintain true, deep, human physical connections, while also appreciating the tools available though our little phones, and glowing computer screens?
What do you think? How do you find balance and rhythm in the technological community?
