chatting with a friend in sydney while walking home from the supermarket - a research of the everyday 2016 - 18

today´s communication is a huge topic with xxx options to say one thing. we use music, pictures, symbols and text in our everyday communication, we text and we hypertext. we chat with a friend on a beach in thailand (almost ?) the same way as we do with a neighbor next door asking if she has got some milk for our breakfast coffee. we communicate with a variety of different media, that´s creative. SOME people are definitely artists, everyday artists, not old fashioned-one-sided but co-operative ones ! ( see also: communication models, pragmatics etc. / linguistics ). maybe artists are still artists, non-artists still non-artists, people stay the same. It´s just a tool.

after all ... communication is an everyday thing, a side-thing, at the same time it´s an act of both expression and cooperation, truly human (siri has no idea about pragmatics!) and something people never ever get bored of ( talking about real communication, not the pathetic fake version ) .. „if the baby doesn´t like the milk, boil IT“ - automatic translation programs on several social media platforms suggested to boil the baby, no joke ! ;)
