Talking to nobody

I’ve recently started listening to a couple of podcast streams which have been both entertaining and informative. It’s yet another manifestation of social media to go along with Twitter, Instagram, YouTube etc etc. I’ve always preferred the written side and not video or voice. It seems to me at least that 5 minutes of video information can be absorbed in less than a minute of text, and rewinding back an forth to find the bit you need later is much harder than finding the right page in the book.

However, I think I’m rapidly becoming a minority. I prefer the long lasting to the ephemeral nature of modern social media. So here in this blog I’m literally* talking to nobody. The stats say so.

* a favourite modern word.
