Zen and the Art of Two Dogs Yowling at Each Other on Skype
My friend @rdbrewer4 sent this to me -- it's very funny and cute. But it's also sort of interesting.
It seems funny because two dogs are using tech to do little else but howl out "I'm here. Are you here? I'm here."
But it's a little bit interesting, I think, because that's actually 10% of all human communication, too. And maybe 20% of online communication.
The first human message sent on Skype was no different than the dog's: "Hello, can you hear me?" (In Estonian, but that's the meaning of it.)
Anyway, my point is, fyi and btw: I'm here. Are you here? Because I'm here.
