During a freshman seminar class taught by a senior undergrad, he projected his Gmail home screen onto the whiteboard, revealing a list of 20+ green dots paired with names. I felt so unpopular at that moment. Being a freshman at Cal, you’d understand the feeling of not knowing
enough any people.
Four years later , I’m that senior with 30 + green dots, 30 + red dots, 30 + yellow dots, and hundreds of those other grey dotted people who lurk invisible.
…. How I ( & Gmail Contacts) have grown.
