As a child, at family functions, I would bring a pad of paper or magazines with me and I would be off in a corner dreaming of playing with my Commodore 64 while at family functions. Perhaps the difference is, I had to learn patience.
What a great discussion on the topic of narcissism. I am not sure where the line is between healthy self love and an unhealthy one. I do totally agree that you have to be present in the moment with friends & family. I have personal rules that in social settings, I keep my phone put away because I can engage my e-friends anytime but REAL friends with which I only have a window of time. At the same time, I do have times when I have no social energy, I fall back to a book, my phone or maybe my Kindle.
I think there is a healthy balance between e-friends and real friends in life and it is best to put more emphasis on the real friends, always.
On the discussion of Adobe Flash, I have had a great experience with Flash and I agree with Stuart that those games or videos should not be lost. I know so many people jump up and down to say Flash is bad but I agree that I would like to see the tech be opened up. Since Adobe is announcing it to be discontinued by 2020, what would it hurt to just open it up, maybe bits at a time as to reduce exposing all the exploits.
Thanks for your show!
