This is a talk regarding social media and the new ways that we communicate with one another. It started with a blank computer and a flashing cursor. The following text was written, real time, on screen.

"Hello.

Hello?

congregational murmur: Hello!

Oh good. You’re there.

This is odd, isn’t it?

congregational murmur: Yes....

The thing is, we spend much time communicating just like this in our actual lives.

Correct?

congregational murmur: Yes....

Most of you don’t know where I am, do you?

congregational murmur: No

Can you even be sure who I am?

congregational murmur: Not really

How am I feeling?

Try this.

Larry Peterson laughing

Confused yet?

congregational murmur: YES!

We have created these strange spaces. They are completely new to us.

Let’s move to something more familiar.

If you have a device that has facebook... go to our group page."

At which point, the conversation shifted to a facebook thread. Moments later, Kris came into the room and began speaking.
