Sharing platforms punch inner monologue in the face

Posted on August 23, 2012. Filed under: startups, venture capital |

It used to be that when we had a thought or observation, that internal voice that hashed it out was talking to ourselves…and then mobile phones came along and all of the sudden that voice started talking to other people…the question I have, is how does that change/affect our personalities and thought quality. If we are no longer reflecting and thinking, but rather the first lens through which we look at an observation is publishing…are we becoming less thoughtful…do ideas and thoughts that are not “fit to print” take a backseat to what others will appreciate and like. Is our desire to feel connected so strong that we are losing the connection and conversation with ourselves?

you have all felt it.  you have a thought and it comes out of your mind in tweet form. there is an audience from it’s conception. i know what’s gained, but what is lost when thought and share merge neurally? In some ways, the self becomes a 3rd party, living and processing experience through an internal dialogue which is less intimate than that of generations past.

From another perspective, the “unfiltered” sharing is more towards sharing “experiences”. Animals that communicate with sonars (dolphins, etc) literally communicate their experience to others 100%. For example, when a dolphin sees a shark and communicates it to other dolphins, the other dolphins would get the “shark signal” as if they just saw a shark themselves. We can’t share experiences that way without technology, but with the new generation of wearable devices we can certainly get closer and closer.

“Thoughtful” communications and “experiential” communications will have to co-exist.
