Prophetic Movie?

I was watching “You’ve Got Mail” because I was feeling quite nostalgic over the loss of Nora Ephron. I realized how prophetic this movie really was. It discusses how people meet online and online addiction. Wow! She was quite genius. I know a lot of people probably viewed it as a cutesy chick flick, but it was more along the lines of modern day prophecy played right before us. We just didn’t realize how true it really was.

Consider how often you check things online. Do you wake up and check your mail or Facebook right away? Do you have apps on your phone specifically for this?  Hmmm…you might be an addict.

How many people have you met online over the last few years? You may not have truly met them in person, but you know them through online communities. It’s the way of the world now. It’s how we operate. I have a lot of friends through the computer. I may not see them due to my schedule, but we keep in touch and care about our lives.

It was interesting how accurate she really was with her thoughts about life in this movie. She was spot on.
