Wired world: Location is still important

with No Comments

LONDON — Kim’s in Egypt this week.

Yea.  That’s something isn’t it?

You wouldn’t imagine that someone is in Egypt, after we watched the recent (mostly peaceful) revolution, and not think it mattered.

Detroit.

It’s a city that may have passed it’s prime.  Today I read that 25% of the population of Detroit has left in the past 10 years.  And that is equivalent to one person leaving every 22 minutes.

That’s amazing!  What does it tell you about Detroit?  Quite a lot.

Many of those who enthusiastically inhabit the wired world — Twitter, Facebook, etc. — will try to tell you that location is no longer important.  But it is.

We are formed and constantly prompted by our environment.  To forget that is to do both communications and people a disservice.
