This week's highlight from my bookshelf
The first time I felt “old” was when I tried using Snapchat. The ephemerality of Snapchat, Instagram, and TikTok seem at odds with the permanence promised by the Web, an infinite archive I’ve watched expand exponentially since the first time I looked at a web page in the fall of 1995 at the University of Illinois. The Web has been (for better or worse) a primarily text-based medium, but these new networks are primarily visual – and I wonder if this distinction between facts and numbers and emotions is echoing again through history.
