RE: Using Me Using You

RE:  Using Me Using You
So is devolution.  In the limbo world, "how low can you go?"
But to summarize your point, radar guns spawn radar detectors. 

The reason for 'professional behavior' is to mask personal 
preference, and therein is one approach to the problem. It 
isn't one that works on all levels.  It isn't that everyone 
wants a close personal relationship; it is that we have 
few good means to filter.  FOAF is interesting, so if 
we see repeats of patterns, I suspect it won't be individuals 
but networks in that model that go 'behind the gates' somewhat 
the way we have closed social clubs now.  Legal?  Another 
interesting question.  Are information force fields legal? 
Not my term.  There is an article about that on the web 
related to all of the devices that will be able to detect 
and phone you someone at the ubqiquity level of Coke signs. 
There are already test cases related to institutions that 
are shielding cellphone traffic.

The communications model we have today has never existed 
in recorded history at this scale and level of penetration.  
That is what makes it fascinating.

Cultural evolution is inevitable.  


There's currently 6.4b on the planet.  It doesn't bother me that most
of them don't want a close, personal relationship with me.  It saves me
the effort of telling them all to [expletive deleted] off.  I'm grateful for the gated
communities.  In an ideal world, all the pathological antisocial people
would all spontaneously opt to take themselves out of circulation.
