Here are some of the most pertinent thoughts about the Web, collected weekly on Twitter.

“Stop building empires for Google and Facebook and Twitter. Your self-hosted blog is your power.”

“As fond as I am of the Internet, I think it makes a pretty second-rate religion. Same is true with fine art.”

“Just as the Renaissance was “The Discovery of Ignorance”, the Industrial Revolution was “The Discovery of Shittiness”.”

“The Internet often reminds me of college. A place whose main purpose is mostly about showing off how smart you are.”

“I think social media can make one narcissistic, EVEN MORE so than being an artist. Who woulda thunk?

Sorry, I couldn’t resist. I really have unholy hours to wake up!

What’s more important: electricity or the internet?

No internet without electricity, that goes without saying. And no oversharing without the internet!

I don’t like to compare what cannot be compared.

Yet if you ask me about the cell phone…

It’s a bloody annoyance to me. If only people had something to say! No,they talk day long without much thought or no thought at all. I live in the town centre of a big city and I have to keep quiet when the end of the day comes and people are still shouting inane blather into their phones…

So. 1st: electricity, 2nd internet, and disqualification of the cell phone.

I admit it, the cell phone helped saving lives and starting revolutions… But there are now new odd behavioral patterns due to this thing.

If I had to lose one of these inventions? I lived long without internet and cell phones.
I’ll just keep electricity. There are so many devices that depend on it…

Topic #270: With the passing of Steve Jobs yesterday, the web is filled with remembrances of a pioneer and industry legend. It’s a sad day indeed. But it’s also a good day to look back and consider the history of innovation. And how all the inventions and creations of the last 100 years have impacted us. As a specific topic to write about: How would you compare the importance of electricity with the invention of the internet? or the cell phone? C … Read More

The post-internet era is near.

I know that it may sound like a vague prediction, but it is coming, no matter if you want it or not.

Seth Godin deals with it for a while now. Check out his TED talks and his blog!

The industrial era came to an end, the post-industrial era is coming to an end, and with her, the Internet, which is in shambles.

I do not want to go back to a pre-industrial era, but to think of how the Internet will be replaced, and how it will affect our lives (especially for employees, employers, entrepreneurs and the like).

The future is in our hands. What are we gonna do with it?

If we have no clue what to do with the present, the “now”, it is likely that we’ll be lost.

I haven’t got miracle recipes. Just keep in mind that even if you don’t feel any threat right now, you must be prepared for what’s next, no matter what it is.

Your best defense is action. Now.

Update (June 8th,2011):

The threat I was dealing with when this blog was published was the shortage of IP adresses. If people are smart enough to use IPv6 instead of the actual IPv4, everything should be fine.

Ditch Internet

Yes.

You read “ditch internet”.

Who am I to exhort you to do this? Nobody.

Don’t you know nobodies are the future somebodies?

To the point: wouldn’t life be better WITHOUT Internet? Have you even tried to live WITHOUT?

Blogs, (I came to hate blogging, to be honest) RSS feeds, A-listers, etc.

They ALL use the same ol’ shit to make us “think different/outside the box”…

Resulting in us thinking all the same.

There’s no shortage of information on the web, but filtering it has become a time-consuming routine that too many of us go through. A time-waster like no other.

Sheeple live without questioning authority ( in this case, blogs ands article-writers or/and self-help book authors. I’d say “self-sabotage” books instead, actually.)

I don’t hate internet. I hate tyranny.

Is living without internet worth it? Definitely.
