Encounters of an electronic kind
We really live in a small world. Communication are modern niches, all we need nowadays is to be fitted with chips so people would know where we are! I joke, but it's happening in our happy but slightly sinister world.
It is phantasmal how things are working. Hubpages is joining the fray, making it much easier to spread that illusive communication message for you, me and him or her. I experience the process everyday but I am still flabbergasted by it, meeting faces behind the electronic screen in a mesh of technology.
I know the one-way, two-way, three-way communication on Hubpages and how it is going, we are communicating with each other through electronic walls. There is many a time when I see in front of my eyes how pleasantly explosive it can become whether in just writing Hubs or posting on the forum because of the generating responses. We really do talk to computers these days.
This has been the case when I 'follow' someone, with the hope that in a couple of hours they would click the computer button and follow me back. On many occasions I found that I would be happily surprised.
I look again at the "follow" total in five or 10 minutes and it would be up by one or even two. I never really had anybody who would "de-follow me" except on few occasions.
Its indeed relaxed but strange sensation because you feel somebody at the other side of the world is watching you through an "electronic hole", sitting and doing exactly the same thing you are doing at exactly the same moment.
A fellow colleague friend of mine told me once, "I just about posted one article, and was re-editing when someone made a comment on it". That's the beauty of Hubpages, providing the right content platform while putting you in touch with fellow readers and Hubbers.
