We have converted all tools to weapons, in the process of hurting ourselves. Think of a knife. You can use it to cut vegetables and meat or you can use it to kill a person. Social media is a tool. It can be used very efficiently to express ourselves, promote our work or gain more knowledge, but its being used to influence us in a negative way where we are becoming slaves of this online hero/ heroine culture.
Although I love technology, I sometimes wish I could go back to my childhood where socialising meant talking to actual people, where photography was an art not a pastime, where food was meant to eat, and celebrities were created by their inspirational work and not by the online follower list.
Great article Tim Denning. At least there are still a few with a working head above their shoulders.
