David Pell, internet addict and early adopter by his own admission, on how the realtime, social web is effecting us:
And the stream [of updates] creates information equality where it shouldn’t exist. I post happy birthday messages to people I hardly know and then forget Norman’s altogether. When my brain was in charge, it used to make these kinds of value judgments. The stream doesn’t. It just runs and runs.
