Jay Servidio founder Teleteria Discusses the Interent Effects on Social Interaction

By: Jay Servidio

During a recent commencement address at Hampton University in Virginia, Barack Obama described the way today's internet-powered media environment "bombards us with all kinds of content."

He warned students that iPads, Xboxes, and other popular digital gadgets can turn information into "a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment" rather than a means "of empowerment."

As soon as the president's remarks were made public, keyboards began slamming throughout the blogosphere.

Since I started Teleteria in 1994 I have seen the changes personally. I am locked up in an office from 530am to 9-10pm 5 days a week answering phone calls, emails, and Im's from staff. Over the past decade, most of us have been dramatically ratcheting up the time we spend surfing the web, exchanging electronic messages, and hanging out in social networks like Facebook and MySpace. At the same time, we've been showering our kids with laptops, iPods, PlayStations and smartphones.

Most days I start the day off at the gym then to my desk. You would think I would be so tired I would have no problem sleeping but half the nights I cant sleep because my brain is still flying at warp factor ten.

When I log on in the morning I read WSJ, CNN, MsNBC, Washington Post, NY and LA Times, Drudge, NY Daily News NY Post, Politico, BBC, Pravda, Tehran Times and Pakistan Times and Al Jazerra, and Korean News while listening to Imus in the morning. This is of course after I spend 2 hours reviewing the last 24 hours of Google traffic. Google comes before my kids. I am sorry but its the truth. No Google no GI Joe. No Google no college.

For those nights when I cant sleep there is always a nice bowl of ice cream and a movie. Last week I was lucky enough to catch The Friends of Eddie Coyle on cable. A great 70's movie by Peter Yates of Bullitt fame. Filmed in Boston in the teriffic gritty 70's style that is sadly all gone from movie making today. I digress.

Kids go home after school so they can log on. Instead of playing ball they go play video games. True they are online with each other but they are also seperate in their rooms alone for hours on end while playing. You can make the argument that they are still interacting with their friends but they are still isolated alone in their room. This cant be a positive thing in the long term.

I am not saying I have the answers. All I, Jay Servidio ,is saying is that times are changing. I sometimes find myself uncomfortable in social settings lately. As I get more and more into online marketing unlocking the tools to higher traffic I spend more time online implementing the tools. As I spend more time online I spend less time socializing. Its been 6 months since I had a night out with friends. This article is not suppose to be me whining. I am merely trying to paint an honest picture from personal experience on the nets effect on me.

So what can we take away from this brief but honest peice? That Peter Yates is a great director? Yes. For me the writing of this article has shown me that I have a battle going on inside me at all times. The battle to get more work done and increase my income and the knowledge that my work takes me away from life. I have to find that proper balance.

I guess after I have a pile of money in the bank or flying past Larry Elison in my sailboat I can take a break.

I am Jay Servidio and that my story today. Lets be real careful out there.
