Years ago (early 90s) when I recognized that broadband Internet would create a new medium, I also thought that much of the content would come from individuals but I did not really think about social networks. That is probably because I was such a nerd growing up that I never passed notes around my classroom.
I don’t know if I am still a capitalist at heart. I watched part of the Goldman Sachs hearing and my stomach turned. Not at what Goldman did but the self serving hypocritical people in our government that are suppose to serve us but mostly severing themselves
And I am pretty sure that some of the most powerful people in the world are 17 year old Russian cyberthugs drinking vodka and playing with our computers and available for hire.
