Social Networking: The broadsheet morphs into the Dick Tracy Watch

dicktracyWhen I was a kid, the newspapers (see below, “A Ritual of Pleasure” for an explanation of what a newspaper is) had a full-color section filled with comics. One particularly quaint strip, Dick Tracy, was created way back in the 1930s when my dad probably read it in his father’s paper each weekend. Mr. Tracy had a very cool watch that was actually a two-way radio. This watch allowed him to communicate with others at a moment’s notice and played a crucial role in solving heaps of crimes. It’s hard to imagine now, but at the time the strip was created, the “magic watch” was as far-out a sci-fi concept as time travel still is today.

Speaking of time travel, fast-forward a couple of decades to the “top-secret development labs” at America Online in the early 21st century. Picture a bunch of us in a darkened room, all in white lab coats, hovering over an eerily lit device that promised to change the future. It was dubbed “AOL Anywhere.” The thinking was actually right on the money: Create a hardware device that would take advantage of AOL’s global reach – thousands and thousands of online communities whose members spent a great deal of time each day staying in touch with each other: chatting, exchanging opinions, gossiping, etc. The idea was to create a portable device that would make it possible to stay linked in (yes that term existed 10 years ago) without having to go home, boot your computer, and dial in to a connection. As is often the case, the problem was size. The blasted thing was packed, but it was still way too big to wear on your wrist. We struggled with it for a few years, but the hardware technology of the time was just not “there.” Yet.

Fast-forward just a few more years and here we are: we have the iPhone and its many cousins, second cousins, and wanna-be distant relatives. Even gadget-hating folks are snapping up iPhones like free candy. Everybody has one. If you don’t have one now you will have one soon. Trust me. A decade or so ago while in Japan, everywhere I went were people of all ages from preschoolers to octogenarians frantically using both thumbs to text each other. At the time, I wondered how long it would take before Americans were doing the same…As it turns out, well, here we are.

It’s not the games or the maps or even the telephone that makes the iPhone as addictive as popcorn – it’s the ability to communicate in a variety of ways (e-mail, text, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) no matter where you are or what you are currently supposed to be doing (like working or watching the oncoming traffic). In the span of a couple of thousand months the world has changed its mode of travel from horses to jets and its mode of communication from broadsheets to the Dick Tracy watch. Like broadsheets, we can all have a say – huge volumes of unedited tidbits of information, some completely trivial, some earth-shatteringly important, are being exchanged every nanosecond. Over time, broadsheets developed into focused, edited newspapers, a development that in my opinion was (for the most part) a good and powerful change. Just now it may not be so obvious, but I would be very surprised if some very smart people aren’t about to develop and deploy a new editing paradigm. After all, it was focused, edited information over his two-way watch that made it possible for Dick Tracy to win his cases.
