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. len From: Jason Aaron Osgood [mailto:mrosgood@y...] Cultural evolution is inevitable. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_theory http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bifurcation_diagram http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cultural_evolution 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.
