The Who's guitarist seemed to find the internet useful when he was accessing child pornography.
That "slick" look you notice is designed to get you to engage, by means of absorbing information from the site. It's not meant for interaction or learning, just mindless consoomption of whatever product or ideology is on blast today.100% agree, I think the internet is great obviously and maybe I'm nostalgic. but every part of it does seem to me to be worse, I genuinely think websites are all getting worse just in design the new think seems to be "slick" or in other words it looks like it was designed just for mobile
He said he was doing "research", and I'm inclined to believe him.The Who's guitarist seemed to find the internet useful when he was accessing child pornography.
I would that he's more right than wrong, from the standpoint of social media and cellphone addictions. These certainly have much more participants than sites dealing with kidney failure in cats, or genuine traditional media outlets.Roger Daltrey is both right and wrong at the same time.
I agree. The bad side of the internet has overtaken the good side as people have become even more like mindless zombies than they were to begin with.I would that he's more right than wrong, from the standpoint of social media and cellphone addictions.

Yeah, that stuff just blows my mind. I'm like you except that I use the CBC.If I need to know what's going on in the world, I'll punch up CBSN., not Qanon, which unfortunately too many people do.
Well, the problem there is that it wasn't just social media. Fox "News", "News"Max and OAN were saying the same things. I think that this is what made the lies on social media seem credible. After all, if a large "news" network is saying it, people are far more likely to give it credence.Trump's "the election was stolen", is a glaring example of social media misleading, nay verily outright lying, about WTF is actually happening.
