Signs of the Times

Posted by on April 15, 2004

Tuesday night in class a girl was talking about her little brother, and how he doesn’t hang out with his friends or talk to them on the phone or even chat with them online. “They all have these online journal things,” she said, baffled.

“Blogs,” someone said wisely, pronouncing it to rhyme with “blow.”

“Yeah,” she said. “And he comes home and writes about his day and then goes around commenting on all his friends’ sites while they comment on his. It’s so weird.”

Is this how people reacted to the invention of the telephone, too, I wonder?

Interesting side note: MT flags “blogs” as a misspelled word.
