Where the wired things are

So I’m sitting at my laptop and to the right of me is my Droid and to the left of me is my Ipad and I’m using all three simultaneously. My son comes into the room and comments on all of the gadgets I’m using and it’s then that I realize how wired I am. How wired are you?

Let’s have some fun. You know you’re wired when:
  • You return to a place you just left because you realize you forgot to check in on Foursquare and you totally want the points, not to mention another mayorship.
Now your turn.


  1. I wish I was but no cell, no twitter, no ipad, no ipod, no laptop. I am however on my computer pretty much every second possible.

  2. Marcy, lol. I don't think I could live without my cell phone or laptop or... Come to think about it, pretty much everything. Well, I could live without them but my life would definitely be different and much harder in many ways. Did you ever think about all of the gadgets and gizmos in films and literature from the past that has become a reality? I used to watch this show when I was little called The Waltons. The family seemed to have a lot of heartache and their life sure wasn't easy. But there was always love. While I value the importance of the digital landscape, I think we need to be careful that it doesn't replace social interaction. Our kids need to feel our hugs and be told how much we love them. Seeing it via a text message or e-mail just isn't the same. Anyway....

  3. I'm the one in the house that freaks out if the Internet goes down because I can't check my blogs. Now I have the Internet on my phone so I'm not as worried. I guess I'm addicted.

  4. I remember The Waltons.

    And don't get me wrong, I wish I had a cell phone and an ipad and a laptop and every other technical device I could get my hands on. But I don't so I'm not as wired as I'd like to be:(

  5. I purposely DON'T get internet on my phone because if I did I would basically never talk to anyone, never see what was around me, etc. I have to put that limit there because otherwise I'd be checking my email/blogs every ten seconds.

    So... I'm so wired I have to force myself NOT to be wired sometimes.
