I consider myself fused with The Cloud, living so much of my life and work through and for the Internet.
Alas, these past few months I have found myself deep in my First Life, living and thinking and doing apart from the Internet.
Indeed, email seems like hard work, I am so behind on my reading and replying. No, it's not that there is too much email, there really isn't. It's just that I'm rarely in Outlook or Gmail.
Or in my feed reader.
Or posting anything.
Oh, I'm really active twittering, working and chatting via SMS, talking to folks all over the world, immersing myself in the lives of users, learning via First Life how folks truly use The Cloud and Mobiles to make their lives easier.
I'm just not spending time in my Second Life.
I'm not ashamed that my First Life has taken over my, euh, life. It's how it should be.
The Cloud is not a destination, but the fabric upon which we live. The Cloud is just behind the stuff we use to interact with it - plumbing.
There is no Cyberspace, no Web site, no Info Superhighway, there is no Second Life.
There is only our First Life.
