I have to tell you about the language of
My generation: prodigies of telecommunication
I’m unable to picture the logic behind learning to talk, to verbalize,
Using lips, tongue, and teeth, because I only use my fingertips to speak
But not many of us can read signs
We fidget our digits on keyboard and screen
The jump between digit and digital is two letters: PC
Man is trying to create himself through technologic means
Saving words and pictures in a location and calling it memory
Relying on notifications rather than memorization
Minimalizing our social life into a social network
We plug our ears and pump repetitious music through, blocking sound
We can now conceal our sight with computer retinal screens
We restrict our own hands with digital vices–I mean mobile devices
Viewing our machine–routine life in third person to repair the glitch–stitch in time
I’m saying we are confining life. Animation.
We are transforming it to something tangible–manageable, mechanical.
We are Computer Generation
