Initiatives Philosophy Rediscover the World Wide Web! :-)

An introduction!

First, you might want to ask yourself what the World Wide Web actually is. If you don’t know then I suggest that you look it up on Wikipedia. It is the greatest invention in communications since that fuck-face Henry Ford started turning human civilization into fascistic trash, a machine whose sole purpose was infinite growth and production and consumption. Well, we’ve done that, and we see how it goes. Now go the fuck to bed, little Nazi.

But anyways . . . ! πŸ™‚ I want to begin this in an illuminating fashion, something that is attractive and pleasant for everyone! Because it is very important that people pay attention to it.

We need to recognize what was accomplished when the Web was devised. And we need to leverage that power. We need to learn that by connecting everyone to everyone else, we become a greater thing. And by that virtue we discover things we hadn’t even thought of discovering.

I’m out of breath now, but I hope that this starts, or continues, a conversation about how important our connectivity is. If we don’t recognize it, we will risk our total demise. We must connect, like it or not, to every living thing around us, if we are to survive this jaunt through the universe.

I really like its concept and purpose but it is engineered by people who apparently don’t care much about feng shui.Β  It’s a disaster to navigate for those of us with high Web sensitivities.

One Small Step for the Web… β€” Inrupt

I’ve always believed the web is for everyone. That’s why I and others fight fiercely to protect it. The changes we’ve managed to bring have created a better and more connected world. But for all the good we’ve achieved, the web has evolved into an engine of inequity and division; swayed by powerful
