In a recent offline conversation, I dropped a comment:
That’s my common social object with so-and-so.Me in an informal conversation
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.
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.ironically on a Teams call
The tools may change. But, the trajectory will probably remain the same.
Note to myself: My blogger skills are very useful.
