Well I am finally back from my 3-week course at Princeton...
There I took none other than ... "Human Nature and Technology" ... but of course.
Anyway, we covered some really interesting information and read some really key authors as we delved into some deep philosophy, and discussed the definitions and implications of technology.

The first thing I will share with you is an awesome website that shows the thoughts of the internet collective...

Check it out HERE

With the increase in various web sites (especially social-networking sites) it seems that a consolidation needs to occur.
After the fall of the Roman Empire, Europe was left with various Germanic tribes as the rulers of Europe.
From the thirteenth to nineteenth centuries, Europe saw a massive consolidation of power with the formation of countries leaving Europe in the present state.
Perhaps, the internets requires a consolidation of power.
For example, perhaps Facebook could purchase MySpace and consolidate all of its users into one massive social network.

As always, please leave your thoughts behind.

Who knew that twitter would be so successful?
Who would like to hear when I am doing the laundry or reading a book?
Yet, it is so much fun.
Just another example of how the internet is connecting mankind.

Human Connection

It is impossible to know all of the information in the world.
That is the purpose of the PhD, in order to focus in one specific area.
However, the internet mediates this flaw.
We are seeing a centralization of information which increases the flow of thought tremendously.

It took over 3,000 years for humanity to create scrolls, and another 2,100 years to create the printing press. Approximately 550 years later, the telephone revolutionized the world, soon to be trumped by the internet a mere 30 years later. This may be selective observations, but innovation seems to becoming more and more common.

The next step in man's quest for knowledge is a direct connection between all humans.

What do you think?

Class Struggle Removed

Since the renaissnace, the modern world has been plagued by class struggle.
Primarily seen in Europe, the lower class has waged a perpetual struggle against the higher class.
However, this quickly becomes a paradox.
Their can only be two outcomes:
  1. The lower class is defeated, and the higher class continues to take advantage of them
  2. The higher class is defeated, and a class swap occurs. In other words, the higher class becomes poor, and the lower class becomes rich, which inevitably ends in yet another struggle.
This is not to say that there have never been any attempts to solve this solution.
Communism is probably the quintessential example in this scenario.
However, with Communism, society leans toward the lower class, and the government is tempted with the possibility of achieving the higher class.

The internet ends this class struggle.
As you are reading this post, you do not know who I am by my past, nor my economic status.
You can only know who I am through my ideas.
I could be an MIT professor, or a janitor of a high school.
Either way, if my ideas are correct, then I am given credit.
If not, then my blogging entity is not respected.

Thus, if the only line of communication was through the internet, then classes would cease to exist.
