You know you live in the 21st century when…

  • …you catch yourself swiping at a printed page to turn it over, or when you check middle-top or bottom-right of the page for the time
  • …you write something in a notebook and feel horribly exposed when you can’t press Save and have it instantly backed up to the Cloud
  • …you recall how you used to get a pale tan band from wearing a wristwatch
  • …you communicate with people in the same room by Twitter or Facebook status
  • …you fuel nostalgia trips with YouTube because all of life is there
  • …you go to work by jetpack. Oh no, sorry, we’re not quite there yet, are we?
  • …you feel cheated that life doesn’t have an undo button
  • …events just don’t seem genuine until they’ve been validated by Twitter and Facebook, with a healthy dose of Instagram, Tumblr and YouTube
  • …some of your best friends are people you’ve never met
  • …the kind of conversation you used to have with friends down the pub becomes the perfect topic to blog about
