The rhetoric of a generation.

“I don’t want to have to work on a mobile, I want to sit at a desk and work at my computer”.

This is coming from a generation that, at least, half way through their lives never even had a computer!

The assumption of “mobile” seems to be that you have to work all day. i say this because the argument “I want to leave the office and switch off” seems to be played many times.

Who said that “mobile” dictates your hours?

All mobile dictates is that you have a choice.

Standard desktop computers, as much as laptops, have really never changed design for over 170 years (since Charles Babbage invented the computer) – it is still a lump that you have to goto to use.

The computer tells us what to do.

Mobile computing is different – we tell it what to do, we do not have to answer to the demanding box in the corner of the room.

What time of day you choose to work is up to you, and just because there is a computer in your pocket does not mean that you have to look at it. It just means that it’s there when you do.

There”seems” to be a generation that are intent on rhetorical arguments that make no sense other than to expose a “colander” method.

Is it a fear of change? I don’t think so. I think we’re so early in the method of the web and contemporary technology that it’s a little overwhelming.

But one thing is for sure, it’s not going away for a while.
