For the visually impaired: a cartoon with 3 people is shown, depicted two friends wanting to pick up the 3rd friend.

Friends: "Hi, we're about to drink a beer in a bar. Do you wanna come with us?"

Friend: "I have thousands of unanswered emails, I have not Twittered today, I have to write my more than thousand Facebook friends, I have to join Pownce, I haven't blogged since… I have no time to drink a beer in a bar. I'm busy enough being social."

Friends walk away.

    Haha!! That's awesome, Ruud. But, even though I have turned many things down due to Social Media…. a beer was not one of them. :)

    Has someone been observing my boyfriend! That's spot on :)

    Hey that's not fair, I only duck out of having a beer when I know I've got to be first to the bar ;)

    I was sliding this way — but I have a *great* family so, hey, pretty soon you think "why in the world…."

  5. I'm afraid to wonder what it means that the last time I got together for drinks with friends we all brought our laptops, went to a bar with Wi-Fi, and sat there reading email, blogging and Twittering over cocktails.

    Surely there's a 12-step program for this.
