Quote of the day: INTERNET

March 6, 2013

INTERNET

Jacques Ellul is a twentieth-century philosopher. The core thing I took from him is we should look at any new development and ask, “Will it dehumanize us or make our lives better?” The biggest mistake made with the Internet is allowing anonymous comments. People act like the Vandals or the Huns. Teenage girls are bullied. People post nude pictures without consent. It’s a complete junk medium.
