Not So Quiet Village

I´m So Totally, Digitally Close to You by Clive Thompson is an intelligent view on social networking and how it continues to change and re-define our perception of ourselves and others. Surrounded by constant "ambient information" we see the internet changing from "global village" to an enclave before our eyes.

Only a short time ago the Internet was an anonymous, virtual place where everyone could define his own appearance. New social networks are reversing this trend at a rapid space, making it hard at all to lie about yourself.

Quote from the article: ‘On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog’? On the Internet today, everybody knows you’re a dog! If you don’t want people to know you’re a dog, you’d better stay away from a keyboard.”
