Do you remember when e-mail used to be fun?
Little notes exchanged. Thoughtful moments. ‘Hellos’ from afar.
Then, this once-new mode of communication was co-opted—like regular mail and telephone (think direct-mail ads and telemarketers and robocalls)—by the powers that be, the powers that want to be, and commercial profit-seekers who want more of you.
Your money. Your vote. Your time. Your attention. Your money.
Watch out texters and Facebookers. The “business” of crowding out our private moments, interrupting our personal space, and overwhelming us with worthless static and “ca-ching” chatter is on the way.
Happy Anarchy will be co-opted once again.
