Sunday Book-Thought 23

Reading is an activity that fosters a strong sense of individualism and it created the 20th century. The Internet instead fosters a sense of being one unit among seven billion. The Internet fosters the rise of the individual mind as an app… an app called you. How do you use yourself as an app? When people click on the button called ‘You,’ what happens? When ‘You’ are applied to a situation, what happens? Does the situation get happy? Funny? Stupid? Dull? What does the app called ‘YOU’ do that no other app on Earth does? Welcome to the Post-Analog Condition.
