EP. 7 Eight Basic Manners of Tech-Mediated Communication

EP. 7 Eight Basic Manners of Tech-Mediated Communication

It’s more than just being polite – the truth is that I’ve lost and gained friendships by peoples choice’s to either communicate with or without manners in our world of tech-talk. If you’re someone who has a clue, it should be evident that the manners of common sense or common courtesy have been generally abandoned in the arena of conversation and communication in general. That I, of all people am writing on manners of communication proves just how bad our culture has gotten. As a result, the purpose of this podcast is not to encourage us to rebuild the greatness of 18th century articulation of everyday dialogue from French culture, but to merely crawl out of the grammatical hole it seems we have buried ourselves in. Hopefully we can start communicating to each other as if we actually gave a rip.

Some might say that I’m considering manners to be more drastic than they should be,
Maybe they’re right. But maybe they’re wrong, Maybe the emphasis on manners isn’t drastic enough. For I pose to you that manners, at the very least, are graces of God given to all, that allow us to practically and continually show love to each other and at the most, a tool that God has given His children to build up and enlarge His Kingdom. If our love of God can be measured by our love for one another, shouldn’t we place a drastically high value on manners?
