More on Absent Presence and iPods

Found a post on Fast Company addressing the importance of “bling,” or looking cool when compiling iTunes play lists on a shared workplace network. Though I take a guilty pleasure in rummaging through my coworkers' iTunes, I was interested in the author’s comments on the "iPod affect" on an iPodder's awareness of his or her surroundings.

I wish I had coined the term "absent presence" and written the official definition years ago, but I must track the work of others and watch this topic explode across the globe. At least I can attempt to be a part of this sociological and technological trend.

Check out Andrew Sullivan's comments in The Times to learn more about the growing "iWorld."
