Re-inventing the reinvention of the reinvention.....
Nothing against this kind of thing, but "Science"? Really? A study of 1200 people is a fact established beyond cavil?
Well, no, maybe not, except to internet trolls and the truly small minded. But while this is as entertaining as any film strip I ever watched in elementary school (over 50 years ago. See how much technology has changed our lives?), it's also no more informative nor better grounded in reasoning or data I couldn't conclude from a few years on the school playground.
I mean, if I didn't learn all this about human motivation by the time I was 10, I really wasn't paying attention to the bullies and other children who populated the world I lived in.
The primary difference between then and now, as the video points out at the end, is the anonymity provided by the internet. But then, we had that one pegged 20 years ago, when I was arguing with people at Table Talk on Salon.
There really is nothing new under the sun; and technology really hasn't changed society, or people, at all.
Oh, to be a Millenial and young again, and think the world sprang into existence fully formed from the brow of Steve Jobs just before I was born......
