The untold story of Altair & Vega is one of a constant struggle against distance. So it is now with the internet at large. Statuses, updates, tweets, posts, what may come off as narcissism to older generations is recognized by us as attempts at making our presence known, and for a hope of reciprocation in kind.
Many of us feel alone, and in our solitude we’ve fashioned tremendous communities where every continent is in our pocket, and our every word is heard throughout the world. This is the warmth we seek, where a collection of like minds can come together across oceans to ask each other about our days.
This continues to be our story. You, I, all of us, are so far away from each other. But that doesn’t stop us from sending out our little digital magpies across the divide.
