Esperemos que pratiquem sexo seguro e que as miúdas não comecem a exigir isto também.

"Chamo-me Ricardo Soares,

No sábado, dia 15 de setembro conheci a rapariga da minha vida no Bairro Alto.!

No meio da multidão trocámos olhares e com um gesto de lábios ela disse: apanha-me ! e fugiu por entre as pessoas.

Fui atrás dela e segui-a até ao Jardim do Príncipe Real.

…ou como as redes nos mostram o mundo. Um ensaio admirável.

I watched in real time as these people reconstructed themselves in the wake of events — altering their avatars, committing to new causes, liking and linking, boiling over in anger at dumb comments, eventually posting jokes again, or uploading new photos. Learning to take the measure of the world with new eyes. No other medium has shown me this in the same way. Even the most personal literary memoir has more distance, more compression, than these status updates.

In the world of social media, it can feel bizarre that potent evidence of grieving from one friend is followed so quickly by pictures of oven-fresh cookies from another. But Facebook is generated by algorithms without feelings. It’s not a narrative: The breast cancer went into remission, but the stories of the radiation treatment continue; the lost children remain as photos, woven into the threads of hundreds of lives. The details of everyday life begin to fill in around those threads. The tide brings in status updates; the tide takes them out.
