I didn't really understand what he meant by constant deconstruction and reconstruction of social connections. I haven't experienced this personally as I never communicate with people I don't talk to but maybe this concept is more widespread than I thought it was.
This is strongly tied to Raby's text about discourse. It is very obvious after reading tweets and FB status updates how the discourse creates this culture where everyone is talking about irrelevant things about themselves and vaguely listening to others while waiting for their turn to talk.
While reading and writing about this article I was texting with 3 different people, dealing with facebook spam, checking my e-mail sporadically, cooking food, having a dicussion with my mom, making coffee, and changing into clothes for school. Getting out of this internet connection/multi-tasking culture is a lot harder than I thought it would be. Anyone else in my boat???
