FacebookChating


Today, i was having a conversation over the Facebook chat. Just like any other, when i suddenly found myself thinking about multitasking.
I can’t remember a which point it started, but, there was a moment when, during the same conversation, there where multiple conversations or levels of information.
There were multiple topics, arguments and exchange of information happening at the same time, as if it were a complete different conversation.
We, native-digitals or almost native-digitals have develop this capacity, this way of commutation where we can have this constant exchange of pointless information while having a complete different conversation with the same person, at the same time. Some would call it multitasking, but it is not as much as doing different things at the same time but doing one single thing multiple times, at the same time!
Does that make any sense?

“On-Time”


So,basically @Zenxzai and me (@diezc) were arguing earlier about one tiny, little fact the just, bursts us down with anger. The fact that, even thou we all carry at least two clocks with us (watch, phone, etc), why is it that no one is EVER on time. Think about it. I’m sure there is at least one person in your group of friends, if not all, that never arrives at the designated time. Problem is, there is some one who does. In our case, us, @Zenxzai and myself. So, since books for dummies are so “on the wave” these days, and everyone loves them so much (funny thing, for they are actually completely useless, almost) we thought of a new one.
Time for Dummies.
First chapter: The concept of time. One-way flux.
Second chapter: Short history of the clock. Time measuring.
Third chapter: Types of clocks. The Watch.
Forth chapter: How to correctly read the time.
Fifth chapter: Time in modern society.
Sixth chapter: Relative time. Einsteins theory of relativity.
Seventh chapter: Review of most important concepts.

We deeply believe that an understanding of these notions would improve everyone’s life a little, and most important, help us all be happier. seriously. No kidding. No, no we are not.

Yes we really think it could help people.
