"The Web may provide us

“The Web may provide us with a way to transcend our current and limited spheres of knowledge to grasp a further and deeper understanding of what it means to be human and to be alive.” Derek Powazek’s contribution to the growing literature about weblogs pointed me to Julie Ann Petersen’s thoughts on some of the ways in which this will happen. This is some of what I’m reaching for when I bore my friends with babble about how incredible, unprecedented, revolutionary, paradigm-changing, blah blah blah the Internet is. I mean, people used to huddle under rocks when they weren’t killing things for food and picking bugs out of each other’s hair. I don’t know what that means.
