Jonas Long Posted April 10 Share Posted April 10 this is something i've thought about a lot, how incredibly fucking miraculous and amazing is it that we have this thing called the internet? i think it's so huge and amazing that we haven't begun to scratch the surface of how to really utilize it to our best advantage. i guess you could say this about a lot of things, and life in general, a "youth is wasted on the young" kind of thing. which way will it go? will we eventually learn how to use this absolutely reality game changing thing in the best way it can be used, or will it be squandered like so much of humanities capabilities seem to? we should be having the best conversations of our lives every single day, and experiencing the best art and expressing ourselves to our full creative limit, and there's NOTHING stopping us but ourselves. i was personally resistant to technology for a long time, and still am in some ways, i didn't get my first smart phone until i was 31, i'm usually the last one to join all the social media trends, i'm wary of whats popular, it often seems like popularity is what ruins a thing, like your favorite band for example. thinking of exponential growth in things, like how the advent of film making wasn't that long ago, and we've gone from a movie of a train leaving a station to whatever james cameron is up to now, or the even more recent advent of video games. i dunno.
