of course we would notice! Once someone I knew on twitter died. I only found out after thinking I hadn't read from her in a while, so I checked her profile. I was surprised how upset I was, after all we never exchanged more than 140 letters at the time.
It's funny eh, how we develop these relationships with and attachment to people we've never met! Especially with things like Twitter, you're right...it's never 140 letters at a time, and yet it's enough to make you worried or upset over someone! It's a strange but cool world we live in.
Of course! I come here everyday (well, on work days) and sometimes I think "Why hasn't she updated yet?"I get really sad when I think that, if people I know in the internet died, I wouldn't know for a while - maybe never!I used to read blogs from anorexic girls. When one of them would stop posting, everybody would freak out because we usually would expect the person to be dead. And then, someday they would return, and we would be all really pissed for being so worried for nothing. That's why I learned to let all my passwords written down on my diary, so if someday I die, my friends can tell people.It's kinda morbid, but I guess I deal better with the idea of my death than I deal with the idea of anybody else's death.
Ack! I've never been so emotionally attached to a blog...well, I do wonder about Iris when she doesn't post on Pigs or Josh when he doesn't update CaffeinatedToothpate (which has never happened, as far as I've known him), but anorexia is a much more sensitive and serious topic than comics, so yes. But it's actually a really good idea to have a method to give someone access to your social networking sites...it would be slightly disturbing to know that my facebook page would be kicking around after my death....yikes. And yeah, morbid, it's true, but I guess it's realistic? Not that I have kids I have to worry about at the moment or anything, but once I do, I'm sure I'll worry constantly about dying or worse yet, them dying. Anyway, onto more uplifting comics! Thanks for the commment!
