Technology Discussion Can Be Kinda Weird

My travels have been, in part, to attend this conference. Current panel discussion is ranging from the persistence of identity in the online world to the appropriate use of hashtags in twitter. I find such talk interesting to some degree, but when it geeks out a bit too much I also find it to be a bit odd. I do think there's a tremendous not very understood generation gap forming between those who grew up online and those who didn't, along with the class-based digital divide within generations. I guess what I'm saying is I think the sociological discussion is fascinating, the geeky discussion not so much. Anyway, get off my lawn!
