Under the sun

I am as much prey to the wonder of the new as most people, at least for awhile. But once, as it always is, any new thing is exposed to humanity's relentless, horrible assimilation, I can see through it as well as old Claude Levi Strauss. We herd all things, no matter how wondrous and novel and illuminating, to serve our same needs.

So no one ever asks me "Is the Internet more like a TV or more like books?" which would be an excellent question.

Is the Internet more like TV or more like books?

Oh, but alas, who said books and TV were different.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
