A tanka written by Lee Sonogan
Most simply, ‘present shock’ is the human response to living in a world that’s always on real time and simultaneous. You know, in some ways it’s the impact of living in a digital environment, and in other ways it’s just really what happens when you stop leaning so forward to the millennium and you finally arrive there. – Douglas Rushkoff
World not as it seems,
Yes, you should question it all,
Now see regimes?
About time out wailing wall,
Lay these lyrics, less memes!
Before blogs, it was all about physical presence. We used to send out videos and audiotapes to communicate. Blogging and the Internet allow us to engage in a lot more real time conversations as opposed to a one-way dump of information or a message. – Indra Nooyi
