Antisocial Networking!!

So..... how often have we been told that "it will rot your brain and turn you into a zombie!"

As far back as the mid nineteenth century we had the Penny Dreadfuls and also "dime" novels from the States.

Then in the 1950's "comics" were seen as the ruin of their age (psychiatrist Frederic Wertham wrote a book, The Seduction of the Innocent, where he accused comic books of causing youth corruption and juvenile delinquency).

Video nasties in the '80s then took over the mantle, creating the trash that is today's adults.

now...... we have "Antisocial Networking!!"

will we never learn how easily our children are injured??

Can we ever climb back up the shore towards the purity before the 1850's ...... or is this all the Descent of Man?

ah, who cares, maybe I'll just Twitter this.....


ahh, all this new fangled communication ain't all bad then.

oh, maybe it is


  • You're still chatting then :-)
