Hyper-connected generation rises

Mobile phoneInternet services such as Twitter, Jaiku and Kyte TV are giving rise to a “hyper-connected” generation.

An increasing number of applications has been launched that take advantage of “always on” connections, either over the net or on mobile devices.

Users are not just sending texts and e-mails, but are “lifecasting” words and video 24 hours a day.

“It’s a lifestream of your activities – both in the real world and online,” said Jaiku’s Jyri Engestrom.

    The thing that scares me is that many people are often more present in cyber-space than they are on the plane of real people. I know, I sound way older than I am but I love random encounters of the human kind & me thinks they might be in danger, unless of course, you count chat rooms.

    Thanks for the updates!
