what's that supposed to mean? Hahaha

ok, here's a starter:

web2.0, facebook, iphone, twitter, aim, forums, mobile blogging, podcasting, google... what's your opinion? do you contribute? is it worth your time?

I can chat with friends on the internet Smile

I can buy spring reverbs from Dutch people Smile

I can fill dead time at work by learning about things I would probably never otherwise learn about Smile

So long as one doesn't let these things become the centre, and maintains one's interest and upkeep of the being, then these things can contribute meaningfully to one's life without dominating it.

In other words, they're alright but not ACTUALLY properly important Grin

Modern life in 200 years will probably be a lot more rubbish.

some great stuff is coming out of the web at the mo, im loving webservices, javascript and ajax!
...of course, all this comes at a price... which is a ton of sites that suck. a few are good.. but most suck.

modern life is the same as pre-modern life & the same as future life.

It is what you make it.

As long as you value real,tangible elements instead of materialistic,shallow,unfulfilling objects you'll be a happy man/woman.

Me,I'm a grumpy guy,I wake up grumpy,wank grumpily and go to bed grumpy. I talk to no-one & am a notorious Hermit (Statto has nothing on me)

This is what makes me happy.

some wise words here. Personally, I'm enjoying the web quite much at the moment. And therefore modern life.

But I feel an addiction coming:

- too much checking email (thunderbird is running all day)
- too much twittering (almost running half of the time)
- too much time spent on facebook, xing, etc. (currently at least 2-3 updates a week)
- the strong personal wish to create a user-generated-content-site with a lot of ajax-functionality Lol
- the want to own an iphone and a macbook pro (and I NEVER cared for apple)

Plus witnessing my kids videochatting with my parents. It's weird to see how technical their life's going to be. When I was their age, there were 3 programmes on tv and there were no mobiles. (not to speak of the internets, instant messengers, etc.)

as long as i don't have to write blogs, ever setup a facebook account (myspace is far too time consuming and shit as it is - "social networking" sites... die), find out what the hell twitter is, do mobile blogging (hmmm nice from a numeric keypad Teef ) etc i'll be happy.

forums and internet in general, see what macc said. invaluable source of knowledge, be it biased or not. if i want to know something, just type it into google and 15 mins later i'll be a lot wiser on the subject. noice Xyxthumbs

Of course I wouldn't want to live without the internet, I Lovesmilie it. I live from it and that's why I sort of try to stay up to date. I kinda have to know about all this Web2.0 services and so I get to use some of them.

I just feel that my life has become much more complicated since I decided to create many information channels through various networks. It's a sort of love-hate relationship.

netvibes.com for example. My account is so packed with information that I won't ever be able to read through all of it. But probably I'm just badly organized or summink.

@Wilshy: Twitter is "microblogging". You type 140 chars into some mobile unit or your computer and all your "followers" receive the message. All these twits kinda create some nice sort of background-noise and a constant stream of information which ranges from utter crap to totally useless shite Hahaha (once in a while somebody says something interesting or posts a nice link)

:d :d :d bbw's for the win Teef


its all a way in which you percieve things

tv for example you could just choose to ignore all the bullshit reality stuff (tho its hard i admit every ad break being full of it) and just watch informative stuff like docs


theres still some great stuff on tv so its a shame to ignore it tottally, but then thats where alluc comes in handy Icon_yippee

http://www11.alluc.org/alluc/documentaries.html

been watching various bbc horizon ones lately, watched one last night about the life of motorways in britain sounds yawn inducing but was actually pretty good
