It's a familiar human condition to find yourself in a space of communication but unable to string a sentence together.
But it's strange to find yourself in a space of communication that invites, say verbal communication, only to find, say, writing a message on a card and flashing it up a more effective and viable form of expression.
On the Net - and especially Flickr - there's a sub-genre of expression/exhibitionism/conceptual photography that involves creating and uploading images of things - but often yourself or your mate - covered in scrawled messages.
This marker madness stretches from people saying hello, to declaring love or giving instructions on how to cook them.
As ever, Yoko One must have fluxed this years ago but in the context of the net and all it's supposed to be doing as a platform for seamless communication and exchange, it's puzzling - but interesting.
Why the need to 'self-billboard' and send scribbled messages in a bottle if you're part of an epic, happy, super-friendly media party?
Plain old exhibitionism?
Or evidence of the boundaries of the Net and ways people are trying to escape its isolationism.
In other words, a new language of Robinson Crusoe-isms?
