Not just a mythological thing…
On the manipulation that happens on social media and the usage of our personal data.
Perhaps I am not the only one with these feelings…
Just that, a question asked of modern urban man.
Okay, it’s a bit related to technology again, but more playful and silly.
Let’s round of this month’s poetry with some internet social commentary.
I am definitely part of the Internet generation. My father got us online fairly early on during the days when internet pages were mostly text and what graphics existed took ages to load up. I still have vague memories of using the search engines which seemed to be the meat of the early internet, where I tried to find information that I could not find elsewhere in my small home town and I also vividly recall stepping away from the computer to fetch myself a drink while I waited for a webpage to fully load. But the internet back then was not only a useful tool, a hidden trove of information, it was also a safe haven for social outcasts and recluses, such as myself.
