Conversations, as they tend to play out in person, are messy—full of pauses and interruptions and topic changes and assorted awkwardness. But the messiness is what allows for true exchange. It gives participants the time—and, just as important, the permission—to think and react and glean insights. “You can’t always tell, in a conversation, when the interesting bit is going to come,” Turkle says. “It’s like dancing: slow, slow, quick-quick, slow. You know? It seems boring, but all of a sudden there’s something, and whoa.”

Occasional dullness, in other words, is to be not only expected, but celebrated. Some of the best parts of conversation are, as Turkle puts it, “the boring bits.” In software terms, they’re features rather than bugs.

A series of unfortunate losses from various family members including my parents (weather damage, robbery, etc.) attributed to that. HOWEVER lol I take TONS of photos of ‪#‎kiddo‬. She’s still so dang adorable! ‪#‎family‬ ‪#‎love‬ ‪#‎properlife‬
