(User Info)

To live, one has to be born in order to face the difficulties of survival. For a future survival one is advised to face life in its online-modus too. Netbanking, ticketing, downloading of forms, buying - you are invited to make use of various online offers, proposals, duties. The everyday online-life meets the agents of economy and policy, of art and geography, of artificial intelligence and pirates in their www-dimensions, not just copying "real life" but claiming their right of an own, an online-life.

What about your life amid?

Living online means to start the computer, to type and click and usually to sit and stare at the action beyond your body. There exist areas of your online-life where you exactly know what you want (although you might search awhile where and how to get it). But in case you are bored or curious you can discover areas apart the business of your everyday life. And perhaps decide to communicate with people you don´t know much about but at least you do have some things in common: all the people you communicate with do have entry to a computer and internet, they are able to write and most likely they are able to read.

Additionally you share these characteristics with the people that are somehow around you (1), wide awake communicating senselessness and close-by the people who do not or can not post their reality bits. Of course this is understood: every network is accompanied by its ambient.

Frustrated with what you read? At least you do have the possibility to filter and post - it could be less.
