"Social" Media

Ah..."social" media,
Are you the answer to the world's problems?
Or a contributing factor?

I don't know.
I don't know, and I have spent my career building a tiny piece
Of the infrastructure that keeps you alive.

That concerns me.

I've been on "The Internet" from the beginning...
Truly.
I pulled a research paper from a server in France, via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) in 1994...and I was hooked.
The world's knowledge at my fingertips...Amazing.
(I'm older than Pong...I'm always amazed.)

But, "social" media,
You are not amazing.
You are exasperating, befuddling, and sometimes,
More often than not nowadays,
Dividing.

We do not need that.

Master the technology,
Do not let it master you
