The ceasessly growing degradation
in human communication reached a temporary peak with MySpace. Very
rarely had i the choice before to see such despair, desolation and
abjection in a modern phenomenon. People even thank each other for
letting them be their "friend". After revolution which tends
to mean "innovative product", friendship will no doubt sooner
or later stink of corporate, ugly aesthetics and meaningless, junk,
info or exchange of idiotic comments.
If there will ever be a science of an ecology of cyber space then
MySpace will be one of the very first to have people from greenpeace
chained outside its disgusting pages. Such a waste of information
and digital space is scandalous. This is the definition of polution.
True, people do get contacts through it. But then again life flourishes
in swamps and even sewage systems, but we still prefer (i hope) to
breathe the forest or sea air.
