  1. Hmmmm….

    Every now and then I see something really funny, ‘cos it’s true and points out some weird foible about society. Then I realize that even though OTHER folks have noticed the stupid too, it persists. Then I get sad.

  2. Y’know, in about 4 years we’ll be saying similar things about Facebook, too. In about 5 years we’ll be attacking Ello.

    It follows a similar process to fashion. The online tool is invented, the early users explore its functions, the mass of users follow, who use it to do simple things, then the early haters arise, followed by mass hate. And nobody, beyond a few specialists like cataloguing librarians, remembers why the tool was so innovative.

    Sometimes it`s not really THAT innovative. A lot of the `social media` platforms don`t offer too much beyond sudden exposure. (The `like fireworks` bit is pretty accurate.) The Gong Show used to do that too. And to win that exposure you have to parse your ideas into smaller formats, which climatizes folks into processing info in smaller formats.

    • Actually Tumblr made non-controlled vocabulary work by being so popular. Thus,you could find a picture by looking for Thailand,or tailand. Those pictures would be different,but they would both show you images of Thailand.

    Old search engines did that too; especially once Google started their setup.
