Se non lo avete letto ultimamente su internazionale, e in precedenza ve lo siete persi allora vi propongo la lettura di questo articolo di Jaron Lanier dal titolo “The suburb that changed the world”. Un racconto in prima persona dalla Silicon Valley dagli anni ’80 fino ad oggi
Something like that went on in the Silicon Valley I knew in the 1980s. The debates and dilemmas that occupy a generation today appeared in miniature before there was an internet. We took our anticipation of the internet deadly seriously, to the point where it seemed already real. Thus I have experienced the internet age twice.
Experiencing the internet in reality is different – and even bizarre, because although it seemed reasonable to expect the thing to come about, it is still uncanny that the reasoning was right. It feels as though we got away with something we shouldn’t have done.
