Dis-content

What a shame that the web, this wonderful medium for self discovery and sharing has been turned for so many into “content”. There is something so utilitarian about the word, something so manipulative, something so industrial. It seems to sum up all that I thought we were getting away from. Maybe there is still time.

One thought on “Dis-content”

  1. To reduce the Web to something like "content" is indeed a shame.

    The Web made so many things possible, like connectivity, distribution, self-discovery (as you pointed out), and soooo much more… to reduce it to "content" or "media" is to misunderstand it completely.
