Arbitary Obsessionist's Blog : Ambition is redundant. In life, mission is everything.

Tagged, in my dreams

with 14 comments

You were tagged!

A notification has struck your online life.

Did you expect it coming? No? Doesn’t matter. You have still been tagged.

I was discussing the Culture of Tagging with a close friend AA. And not surprisingly, both of us agreed that life is not as it used to be. [Last sentence makes me feel as if ours is a generation past its prime]. In good old days, we were required to make phone calls, write SMSs or letters (!)/emails to make people realize that we still remembered them. But now, all it takes is a few keystrokes, i.e. @Name and bingo! You have achieved a feat that did not even exist a few years back. You have tagged someone! And the tagged person gets to know that you care for them. You have him/her in your mind. You have not forgotten them.

Disclaimer – If by now, it seems like another of my loud-thinking posts, I won’t blame you. The reason for taking up such redundant topics ‘may’ be attributed to this.

So, ladies and non-gentlemen (men should not be gentle 🙂 ), being a part of this revolutionary Age of Tagging, I put forward a radical and disturbing thought.

You would agree with the fact that only time, when you are socially inactive is when you are sleeping. Now what t. f. would happen, if thanks to technological advancements, people are given the ability to tag you in their dreams??

Just imagine 😦
