metacool Thought of the Day

"NetGens think of the computer as a door, not a box.  When they are on,
they have 5-7 IM windows open and multiple tabs into different
communities. Each community provides a way of being, to express facets
of their identity while engaging in an activity. Most activities are
centered around objects to spin stories and hold conversations. They
don’t go to places, it’s more likely they augment plazes in the real
world. With increasing mobility they tap groups for what they need to
get done no matter where they are and make where they are matter… In other words,
the web is increasingly less about places and other nouns, but verbs."
