Do Artifacts Have Ethics? | The Frailest Thing
“I can safely say that we in tech don’t understand the emotional aspect of our work, just as we don’t understand the moral imperative of what we do. It is not that all players are bad; it is just not part of the thinking process the way, say, ‘minimum viable product’ or ‘growth hacking’ are.”

Who Decides Who You Are Online? - NYTimes.com
As the Internet becomes the place for all kinds of transactions, from buying shoes to overthrowing despots, an increasingly vital debate is emerging over how people represent and reveal themselves on the Web sites they visit. One side envisions a system in which you use a sort of digital passport, bearing your real name and issued by a company like Facebook, to travel across the Internet. Another side believes in the right to don different hats — and sometimes masks — so you can consume and express what you want, without fear of offline repercussions.

The Center for Missed Connections
The Center for Missed Connections (CMC) began as a project simply to identify where the most missed connections happen in a given city. New York City is home to the pilot program, chosen for its high traffic and for the propensity of posters to include specific cross-streets or location information. Since then, the analysis has developed a thorough taxonomy of the Missed Connection and a method for identifying whether one has, in fact, had a Missed Connection. The CMC seeks to understand the longing, both poetic and banal, within public spaces.

(2) Clay Johnson's answer to U.S. Politics: What are the most harmful special interests in the US? - Quora
Affirmation and confirmation is a metaphorical cognitive carbohydrate. We seek it out because we're more wired to affirm each other (to keep us in communities, I suspect) than to inform each other. We also seek it out because it feels better than confrontation. <br />
<br />
The result? A new kind of hyper-informed ignorance. We're not ignorant because we've consumed too little information anymore. We're getting ignorant because we've consumed too much of the wrong information.

George Packer: Why I'm not on Twitter, don't have an iPhone
People feel a right to their own facts because there's so many facts, pseudo-facts and falsehoods posing as facts out there that we don't rely on a few sources. There are no key trusted sources that have the assent of most people. That is a long and complex phenomenon, but I do think it's led to an inability to come up with a coherent picture of who we are and what's happening and what the possible solutions are."

"The Internet is causing mass homogenization of human identity, making us all look the same. We use the same tools and social networks, fitting into the same templates, designed by companies to maximize page views and profits. Most online experiences are made, like fast food, to be cheap, easy, and addictive: appealing to our hunger for connection but rarely serving up nourishment.

Why we can't get enough of the stories about Tiger Woods and the Salahis. - By Jack Shafer - Slate Magazine
"Our hunger for salacious news about him isn't necessarily about voyeurism. We're embarrassed by the gap between whom we believed Woods to be and who he really is; and, having put Woods on that pedestal, we want to bring him down where he belongs—with the rest of us sinners. We're like the kid who, upon learning that there is no Santa Claus, conducts a wide-ranging investigation to determine how such a fraud was perpetrated on him. And we'll keep consuming Woods news until our picture of him more closely conforms with reality. We love to crown kings and cultivate messiahs. And then kill them."
