Why do we, as a society, prefer email or social media? We live in the world of customization and watch-later. Our media are controlled. We choose when to partake in our favorite shows, music, and news. Today’s systems don’t pressure us into an in-the-moment conversation with someone we’ve never met and probably never will meet. It’s awkward and uncomfortable. We expect to interact with the outside world when we flip through emails and social media, and we can choose to continue scrolling or to delete those messages. Phone calls are just met with an immediate “decline,” and we don’t think about it again.
