Welcome to the Machine

Welcome to the Machine

Yes I live here, but I resist any notion of a “collective” and have well before The Matrix came along. I grew up during the Cold War, and collectivism (call it a community if you will) was enforced at the expense of individualism.

I am inherently suspicious of technology, as it leads to moral relativism. Webs are woven by spiders to trap prey, paralyze and eat them alive. I see Humanity (at least the sentient ones) dissolving into a virtual collective.

Am I showing my age? Just an island? Or should I move to Brazil?

Here are three good reasons: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.

And don’t ask me about BitTorrent or I’ll find you in Quake.

  1. I drop a comment whenever I like a post on a website or I have something to contribute to the conversation. It is triggered by the sincerness displayed in the article I looked at. And after this article Torgonator 424 » Blog Archive » Welcome to the Machine. I was excited enough to drop a thought ;-) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be just me or do a few of the responses look as if they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list all of your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
