Now as a species it's like we've gone completely in the other direction. Now we tell everyone where we are every moment of the day. When we're at the movies. When we're out to eat. When we're at the coffee shop or the mall. We text and tweet and post things to Facebook that no one really reads because who cares if you're at the dentist or on a whale watch or having lunch with the queen - what we really want is to talk about themselves and what they are doing. But we all keep on with these posts. We want everyone to know where we are. We want everyone to know who we're with. There's no mystery left. Just tedium.
As a college student I found the idea of being anonymous thrilling. Now it seems we find it terrifying.
