[new] Using technology the claim back the net (Avg. Score: none / Raters: 0) (#8)

(User Info)

It is a pity I'm reacting to an anonymous stranger, but he or she shall have good reasons to hide his or her name.

This stanger says he/she isn't floating anymore but stays on the places where he/she finds artistic inspiration or intellectual exchange.

He/she says we should claim the net back, or refuse to give it up, as if there is an other party, who has taken the net, or is trying to take it.

In my opinion that is not the case. The net is just a playtool for older children then we are. We have to grow and learn to use it well.

The way the stranger is handling it, is already the way of such an older child, selecting what is useful to him/her. With blogs people are helping each other in this selection. But blogs are more or less conceptualized as (a web of personal) publication channels. It stays a one-way-communication.
