I think a lot about privacy and our desire to record and share. How much sharing is good sharing? Does it make me feel more connected to people? Or does it make me feel anxious because I’m not getting enough attention? Should I post more selfies? Will we ever get tired of taking pictures of ourselves and posting them online? Will the novelty of recording everything wear off? Will kids who have been recorded since birth resent the online persona their parents have given them?
I would have thought that with all the time we’ve collectively saved by using the internet — Google, Amazon, Twitter, Netflix and Uber — we could have done something important already like solving the income disparity crisis in America. But we haven’t yet. We’ve filled those newly reclaimed hours with more online time and more entertainment.
