technology is oh-so "creepy"

I am not ready to accept that a person's online profile - be it on Facebook, a dating site or some other manufactured and commercially constructed environment - can ever be a substitute for a way a human presents themselves in person.
What is diminished when we filter our personalities through the interweb is the essential stuff of humanness - a person's capacity for empathy, their uniqueness and idiosyncrasies, the quirky way they respond to a social environment. [SMH]
