How do you define death in the online age?

How many days do you have to go without posting on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, a blog, or any other social networking site (SNS) before you are dead to the internet?  Is resurrection possible? Is it wanted?

Am I dead?

My online pulse definitely flat-lined.  But interestingly, whenever it does it coincides with a marked increase in real-world “action.”  ...when I’m very much alive and doing things.

Consequently, it can be deduced that an increase in online interactions correlates to a decrease in real-world actions and vice versa.

Thus, if you become truly alive in real-life you are dead online.  And if you become truly alive online, you must be dead in the real world.

It makes sense now why there are so many zombies in the world.  They have simply given up all their life to the internet.

Which brings back the age old question, do you have a zombie plan?

P.S.  If it seems like I’m rambling, it’s because I am.

P.P.S.  Oh, and why didn’t P.S. die with the advent of BACKSPACE and UNDO?

Feed the zombies.
