There are those who would call our social media streams a new form of consciousness and the future of computing. I would suggest they spend more time interacting with actual human beings.

Reminds me of a paper by an oft talked about author, though virtually nobody ever even reads his paper, much less understands anything in it. He has some interesting things to say:

https://duckduckgo.c...ciety+and+its+future

It hits this topic head on. With a 2x4. Really hard. Repetitively. :P

FWIW - It's an excellent read. I'm not saying that it's gospel truth or anything - just that it is a good read. (Gotta get that in before someone reads too much into things...)

Kaczynski was a genius.  It's just too bad that he bastardized his name and ideals by resorting to terroristic acts.

  It's kind of funny that most all geniuses have proved to be mad in one way or another.  Guess it's the consequence of using so much brain power....  :o
