Social Objects…

Hugh MacLeod has been writing on Social Objects and Social Markers. I read several of his posts discussing these subjects today. I love it! What a great concept!

I have 26.2 tattooed on my calf. It has led to many great conversations with people I might not have met if not for the shared interest in running. The tattoo is the social object for those of us that are running geeks. Basically, anything that two or more people have in common and get them talking can be a social object. To someone slightly introverted, like me, social objects can make someone or a situation less threatening.

This may be the tool to make my escape…
