    Interesting idea.

    I sometimes philosophize about the possibility that as a society we might be losing some of our social moments that happen only when large numbers of us participate in one thing simultaneously. Before mass communications and electricity we shared the night sky. Then we shared events via radio and TV. But in the past decade we have gotten away from sharing events as a whole.

    Our society is becoming very anti-social. Community organizations like the Rotary Club and Freemasons have been dying a slow death of attrition for years. Church attendance is trending downward, especially with young people, and there are parts of the country where religious observance is down to less than a third of the population. My point is not about religion, but about lack of community. I spent a couple of years looking for a decent church before finding one I think I can live with and also joined the Freemasons specifically because I was seeking community. Even so, the pace of my life is sufficiently exhausting that I miss more Lodge meetings than I attend and am only about 50% on going to church. If it were feasible, I would go back to Korea in a second, because I miss the sense of energy and community I found there. America is dying a slow death of greed, corruption and self-absorption and I often think fondly of leaving.

    What a minute isn't one of the primary purposes of Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and all the rest to create a plethora of "social moments'?

    I do not, or ever have, participate in any social media but I thought that is what it is all about. You can be "social" and create "social moments" with the entire world.
