“A change in technology leads to a change in use which leads to a change in content: This seems to be the pattern, though it’s obscured by the fact that the content is so interesting on its own.”
Sounds like a pretty good idea to me.
Some astute observations I tumbled upon while in search of a playlist widget:
I’m all clicking around, looking at new shit, finding blogs to maybe follow and then WHAM! Accosted by loud fucking shitty music.
Suddenly I’m having a flashback. It’s a few years ago. We’re all amused by the novelty of music automatically playing on our myspace pages! Eventually we make playlists! And then… we begin to HATE the unexpected blaring music. We are annoyed with our friends who keep it set to auto play. We roam the interwebs with our computers on mute, held hostage by our fears. And thus came the exodus from myspace to facebook.
All I know is, if I see a glittery gif, am given virual plant life or get “poked” on here, I will lose my shit. It’s a slippery slope, people.
