Re: Online Vs Offline
@ms.akkineni, likewise!  Sounds good - you will enjoy the book.  The important thing is that it confirms it is a "real" reforming of the way we think - so it isn't just an assumption, but that we can "unplug", "re-engage", and "repattern" our brains to keep them in a thinking mode - good news!

Re: Internet of People
I agree! It's scary how kids are with the internet these days. They've become too dependent on it, in my opinion. It's something that worries me for the later generations.

Re: Online Vs Offline
@elizabethv:

Absolutely agree. The main culprit is the mobile data and how these smart phones wiped off all barriers of not being connected.

In your note as you summarized your expereince, it makes all the sesnse how certain situations create all unnecessary tensions just because we chose to not carry the phone. But what i would say is what matters is how you choose to use your device. I am not a person that prefers to be socially active. But i do have a teenage kid who feels absolutely handicapped if not carrying the phone any time and all the time, which make me totally annoyed. But that seems to be norm for kids of that age. But i don't buy that idea at all. But at the same time not quiet sure how to change that habit. It has even become a culture than a habit.

Re: Mindset
Exactly! Even water can be harmful. Like anything, moderation (as in "not excessive", not as in "moderating content") & intention are key.

Re: The internet is alive
I agree! Another cultural anthropologist, Gabriella Coleman, wrote a fascinating book on the evolution of activism performed by people banding together online (and offline) as Anonymous. Without having the internet to connect, communicate & coordinate, events such as the Arab Spring not only would be going unnoticed by the rest of the world; the citizens impacted by such events would not be empowered to relay what's going on and find ways to advocate for themselves and unite together. The internet not only has the power to educate & connect, I think it helps humanize people too. Things going on across the world take on a different meaning when you are able to see firsthand accounts of people who are effected by them.

Re: Internet of People
Tangentially related - I watched a documentary on Amazon Prime (called "Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds") that discussed - among other things - the nature of learning and knowledge. One point it made was how in earlier days, people had more general knowledge, so it was more accessible. Later, as knowledge broke off into specific subjects such as physics and biology, things became compartmentalized and the amount of knowledge expanded so much, that people became limited to how much they can know & learn; knowledge became less accessible. (It's kind of a "metaphysics" themed series, that ties science in with some comparitive religion - so it also suggested a tie-in to the theme of eating from the Tree of Knowledge/being cast out of Eden) Now, theoretically, knowledge is accessible to anyone with an Internet connection, but there is so much of it that it's like trying to drink from a firehose, so we often miss out on the opportunity for engaging in that deeper level of thought and analysis.
