Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - The "Fall in Love" and "Now I Know You" Effects

« Twitter Brings Interaction to Events | Main | Freedom from Choice »


I really like this post. I'm going through a bit of social media disillusionment this quarter and it helps to understand the psychological underpinnings.

The greater part of LOVE is Passion. My wife Sarah and I have been married for 33-years and we continue to find new things to be passionate about. We are still passionate about our children, each other and our memories. But this new social media has created a passion for participation and creation. Our participation in the conversation is renewing us and giving us connections with great people who we would never meet in real life. We love the passion that this media expresses and we only hope our Fall in Love will result in Now I Know You.
Soto is correct; Life is both giving and receiving.

Great post! I've always made the connection between doing something new and getting bored of it after a while (once the shine is gone). To get over the this-is-boring hump, i've always tried to break it down to micro tasks. The part that is intriguing is the connection between micro-tasks and micro-blogging.

This could also mean that the reason more people are not journalists is because they cant finish their piece, starting is easy...
