The Scent We Leave Behind

1 Feb

We always leave behind something with every interaction. In the days when face-to-face was the only way to go, we would give away inner thoughts and feelings with our body language, personality quirks with a stroke of the pen, and if we were to believe even our romantic intentions with something like a scent.

Going online may have limited some access to these “sense data”, but it’s not too far-off that we just simply overlay our learnings from let’s say Graphology to do predictive matchings, based on interest or temperament for social networks.  Communities of like-minded individuals through a mere signature? 1984 redux?

We are who we are. Online or offline. Peace.
