People do not preserve their privacy anymore, the more they show the better. Meanwhile finding real intimacy in any kind of relationship is becalming harder and harder.
Communication technology is invading all aspects of human life, everybody is connected all the time either to a beeper, a cellphone, a palm , a laptop or a combination of them.
This new ways of communication that technology enabled instead of bringing people closer to each other may diminish the quality of human interaction; You can see young people going out together but instead of talking to each other spend most of their time sending text messages trough their phones expecting who knows what response.
Given that most of the people stopped believing in god and miracles maybe this new ways of communications are becoming our new deities.
