Vito Acconci Reaction

I chose to write my thoughts on the first Paragraph of Vito Acconci Reading because that paragraph was the most interesting to me. I like his view on time, how it once was something public, unrestricted but now it have evolved into something more private. He talks about how at one time, time could be viewed in the streets and in your neighborhood which in a sense connected everyone because they shared the same time, again it was public. But once time left the "Streets" and found itself on the wrist of the people the connection that time once created was broken. Time was not public anymore and now the people lost the link that connected them together.

I believe that if this article was created more around my era, "Time" could be allusion to human interaction. How before things such as social media, text, and cellur phones was introduce into the public, interaction between each other was just that, public. Majority of interaction between people was face to face, not behind computer screens or words of a phone. That the interaction between people went from being something that connect us because it was "Public", now that connect have become more "Private" that connect we once had is nearly depleted

Or, he could just be talking about how wrist watches became very popular.
