The Internet is about humanity

Kevin KellyI’m so glad that Kevin Kelly is back to blogging regularly via The Technium. Today’s entry is worth a comment. Kevin writes of what it means for kids to be growing up in the digital age and concludes:

“…the internet is not about computers or devices; it is something mythic, something much larger; it is about humanity.”

This is so true, but there’s one group that doesn’t seem to understand — media companies. To us, the Internet is all about technology, the technology to better enable us to do our job. It’s so much bigger than that, people. It’s a beat unto itself, and one that’s damned compelling, too.

Do you have anybody assigned to this beat? I’ll bet not.
