I read one time that we always view the world through a selective prism.

If one Prism seems to give you a distorted, useless or unaesthetic view of the world—that's fine, swap it for another.

The thing is: All Prisms distort to some degree and there is no such thing as looking at the world with naked eyes.

Something similar to the Uncertainty Principle applies to the Internet—the process of looking changes the content offered.

One person generally has minimal effect, but when you add all the click choices and the popularity and interconnectedness of a site goes up, down and sideways it has an almost infinite but subtle effect on every other site.

Trolls are probably no more influential than any number of other classes of users: Hackers, Otaku, Government Agents, Random Internet Surfers, Goths, Lolitas, Survivalists, Vegans—just whatever…



I would tend to agree... except that Otaku rule.

“If I survive, I will  spend my whole life at the oven door seeing that no one is denied bread  and, so as to give a lesson of charity, especially those who did not  bring flour.” ~Jose Marti

“Write in such a way as  that you can be readily understood by both the young and the old, by men  as well as women, even by children.” ~Ho Chi Minh
