Do we really need to share crap?

Steve Jobs in "The HumancentiPad" (SouthPark)

Quote:
I remember when the first version of the iPad came out. People couldn't believe how easy it was to take their videos, music, and photos, and all their sh it and share it, with other people, who could do the same with all their sh it.
Eat a pizza = Post pics in facebook.

Eat in a restaurant = tweet, and post my geolocalitazion.

We're doing really crazy stuff. Don't see how can this improve our lives, or internet as community and tool. Homemade crap becomes interesting because everyone can produce it with ease.

Wow that's progress.

I think this kind of thing is great for ... say ... folks in the service sent oversees. How nice to partake, even in just a small way, with their families' daily activities.

On the other hand, my niece posts daily to Facebook. "Having a sh*tty day today." "Had to feed the munchkin peas tonight". And I wonder, honestly, does anyone really care?!

I always get reminded of this Penny Arcade comic when I get reminded about how often we need to share the most mundane things with the world.

I'm reminded of an episode on "Criminal Minds" in which the older team members "discover" social blogging sites & Twitter - and ask why people even bother to post such mundane stuff, let alone read it.
