A lot of the blogs I read have been moving in the direction of beefing up their arsenal of communication tools through services like Twitter, De.li.cious and Digg. From what I can tell, Twitter provides snippets of blog posts and other such musings delivered directly to your handheld device while De.li.cious and Digg are spider-web-like sites that allow people to associate themselves with sites/photos/stories etc. that they enjoy. My impression is it's like having a giant scrapbook for all the crap you see online that is cool or interesting that you want people to know you think is cool or interesting. But I'm starting to seriously wonder if all of these web communication applications are sabotaging our real relationships by circumventing the types of conversations we should be having with our friends and family in person? Or at a minimum by email or on the phone...?
