I am still fighting with my paradoxical feelings toward the internet.
Two quick quotes from others that sum it up…
“I am not a Luddite. I am suspicious of technology. I am perfectly aware of its benefits, but I also try to pay attention to some of the negative effects.”
― Neil Postman
If only Postman were alive today to see this internet anarchy).
“The internet was supposed to liberate knowledge, but in fact it buried it, first under a vast sewer of ignorance, laziness, bigotry, superstition and filth and then beneath the cloak of political surveillance. Now…cyberspace exists exclusively to promote commerce, gossip and pornography. And of course to hunt down sedition. Only paper is safe. Books are the key. A book cannot be accessed from afar, you have to hold it, you have to read it.”
― Ben Elton, author of Blind Faith
Tired. Worn out. Disgusted. Sad.
Time out…Pause…On-hold…I’ll be back.
