Revue is unfortunately choking on the Facebook note link, although it is available publicly (even if you don’t have a Facebook account). So here it is: Drifting.
What Tariq talks about here is part of the reason I still write on my blog
. I have felt disenchanted about the “ever faster”
trend pretty much forever – speed is not something that drew me to the web, beyond a certain point.
Again, the other day, I was telling a client about how slow it is to actually build things of value online: relationships, trust, communities.
I also agree with Tariq, if I interpret what he is saying here correctly, that there is something “wrong” with an industry that exploits weakness in people: that is what tools going for “addictiveness”
