I AM SEEING YOU
Have I become a speculative fiction writer, or am I just being prescient? I believe, very soon, you will see people at cafes, headphones in, video instant messaging with friends. Meaning, video iming like it's a cell phone. This makes sense. This is why the whole video messaging didn't work with cell phones. It's not the right medium. You know, the media is the message (or the massage). A computer is the right medium. People will suddenly video message on a computer. Computers are what we use for work. We are ready to pose. We're not ready to pose walking around with a cell phone. Put the lap top on the table. Even if you are out in public, and suddenly, it's cool. It works.
