a handful of my most important people are from the internet. from the tumblr.

And right away there is a huge difference between how the maker of this image and I see the world. To me, the Internet is people. An intellectual and spiritual Soylent Green over the distance. This does not mean that all of Internet is like that but the important bits are.
Of course, if one thinks the people and social quotient of Internet is Facebook, it’s easy to see how one could be a bit limited in scope. (There is hardly anything there made to create connections between people, only maintaining it.)
But no, to me Internet is the people behind the texts I read, the comics I follow, the twitters I skim. It’s about identifying with others experience and see things in ways I normally don’t. It’s about treating people with respect and not — to care about those I’ve never met. And if you think that random person you don’t really know in your English lit class is more important than the person whose blog you commented on for the hundredth time, then I guess the problem is you and not Internet.

very well said “There is hardly anything there made to create connections between people, only maintaining it.” this point in particular.

the Interweb is people!!!
I’m saying it like Soylent Green …but in a good way. Don’t eat the interweb.
