Reflections on Fear in a Networked Society @zephoria

Before you watch the video - read this very short blog as it set the context for me, it explores new vocie and motion technologys and possible reactions.


Basic assumptions from dana boyd (for this talk)

  1. We live in a culture of fear

  2. The attention economy provide fertile ground for culture of fear

  3. Social media is amping up the attention economy

Implications:  we are all different and some of us, based on our perception/ experience of fear and risk, believe that:-

·         the old times were better and change is bad 

·         the times coming will be better and lets change as quick as we can

·         accept it, stop looking for excuses and learn to cope with today.
