Social Media

— La expresión digital e inmediata de nuestra realidad

"You don’t get to cut that chain of evidence and start over. You’re always going to be pursued by your data shadow, which is forming from thousands and thousands of little leaks and tributaries of information." — Bruce Sterling.

"The Internet of Things makes no attempt to redress, or even address, the many real problems that the internet brought to the world. On the contrary, it’s an international effort to bring everything that wasn’t internet within the purview of the techno-elite that currently dominates the internet." — Bruce Sterling.

"Information wants to be free. Believe it." — Bruce Sterling.

"A social media like is a concept that exists between ownership and currency. It's ownership, because it's your like. It's currency because it increases the value of what you like." — Pak (muratpak, vía Twitter).

"You're talking about context and nuance and intent. These things do not exist when deciding if someone is acceptable for society in 2021." — Anónimo.

"Social media does not "get" not-fully-baked. Social media is useless for thinking out loud and exploring notions. Social media—bizarrely, given its nature—does not do context." — Warren Ellis.

"Google it" means I don’t owe you labor. "Google it" means I choose not to give you my labor. "Google it" means I believe you'll learn from the process of discovery than from me handing you answers. "Google it" means learn to use the vast resources at your disposal. Google it.

"Students have an opportunity to look at where they can have the most impact that's in line with their values. The fact of the matter is Google, Facebook, Twitter are not in line with those values because they’re huge companies beholden to a lot of different masters." — Leslie Miley.

"We live in a moment where everything immediately seems to default to outrage... it's either exactly as I see it or you're my enemy." — J.J. Abrams.

"Rotten Tomatoes sucks for the same reason Yelp sucks. Nobody having a happy experience will ever be as motivated to rush into populist opinioning to the extent of someone with an emotional ax to grind." — Brett Lewis.

"How miserable it must be to only watch things to see how many genders are found. When I consume media all I care about is whether it’s good. There’s all female media & all male media that rocks. Quality/writing determines what’s good, not how many identity boxes are checked." — Sophia Narwitz.

"Formspring: where essential human mystery goes to die the death of a thousand clicks." — Warren Ellis.
