David Pogue with some good ideas from everyday life:
It seems to me, though, that we havenâ€™t even scratched the surface [of social media potential]… I was thinking about this â€” a LOT â€” as I lay in bed last week, sicker than Iâ€™d been in years. I hadnâ€™t eaten for two days, and I was nervous about being well enough to travel to a speaking engagement the next day. (Is it just my imagination, or are the bugs getting a lot nastier these days?)
I kept thinking: Surely I caught this from somebody â€” somebody who now knows what this virusâ€™s course will be.
When my kids come down with various horrible flu variations, and it gets bad enough to see a doctor, we often hear from the pediatrician: â€œOh, yes, itâ€™s going around. Youâ€™ll have vomiting for two days, and then youâ€™ll get better.â€
Well, gosh darn it, why couldnâ€™t someone have told us?
