Instant Messaging From 2ft Away


Have you ever realized you’ve developed a really strange habit? I instant message my brother, sometimes all day. Why is that strange? His desk is approximately 2ft away from mine. We don’t need to raise our voices at all to speak. If I roll my chair just a little to the right, I can see him face to face.
I think it all started as a joke. You know, “Haha, I’m instant messaging you even though you’re only 2ft away.” But somehow that’s developed into a string of day to day communications. If he’s working on a project that he wants my opinion on, he can send it over. If I want him to review something, I can do the same….Okay and yes, we can share funny You Tube videos very easily. He’s even figured out a way to take over my screen if I need him to fix something.
Hm, I’m not sure if this is a case of technology making life better or just stranger.
