Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

the debasement of cyberspace

An article on the danger the Internet is in, of becoming a place where we are surrounded by spam, pornography, advertisements, and government surveillance.

Bruce Sterling says that "civil society" has broken down online, and that "it's not just a digital problem, it's the digital reflection of a global problem."

But is it really a problem? As the article notes, this has happened with every technology. The Internet just makes it harder to ignore. But I think that eventually we'll learn to separate one thing from another properly withoutdestroying the nature of the medium.
