Social Objects and how they help me to connect

In a recent offline conversation, I dropped a comment:

That’s my common social object with so-and-so.

I realized how much this old blog post from the beginnings of blogging has influenced me.

My observation: If I find a common social object, it helps me re-connect. If I find a common topic, sport, technology, political view, geographic place, hobby, shared past experiences, the depth of interactions changes.

Sounds obvious.

As 2020 has changed many social interactions, routines, and aspects. I am curious to see what will return and in which way.

2020 is a catalyst for changes that started happening already.

I am curious how work will evolve. Language change is an indicator of societal change. I attended a meeting on Friday where one participant said to another:

I Slack-ed you.

The tools may change. But, the trajectory will probably remain the same.

Note to myself: My blogger skills are very useful.
