I Said Baby, Baby, Baby,

You’re out of time,

Why, then, do we love our smartphones and Twitter apps so much? Because we want to be lovers of our time. The urge to belong to our age is more powerful than the need to use our time efficiently. My kids use text-messaging at every moment. It’s painstaking, time-consuming, finger-jamming and ultimately inefficient. “You’d resolve this in a second if you phoned her,” I say. But they fear something much worse than being inefficient. They fear being traitors to their time, renegades to their generation.

Yes, but I did purchase an exercise machine this weekend. Geezer is what geezer does.

At any rate, an interesting piece.
