The Internet was a town.
Then it became a city, then a nation, then continents, then hemispheres.
Without centralized search tools, early communities were only discovered organically, like neighborhood cafés.
Businesses eager to multiply their reach and revenue logically rushed to create communities that spanned cities, nations, hemispheres. Maximum reach, lowest common denominator, unintended consequences bubbling up everywhere.
Corporate social networks have created the world’s most unsafe and heartless cities in the same place we’re building our future.
