Yes I think the complexity is teaching us a lot about simplicity – the artifical aspects are teaching us alot about what’s real. All the ‘friends’ are teaching us a lot about the importance of real friendship, what that is and what it means. It’s something that has never really changed. And all of this is teaching us how to use the net and live in the digital age: for us, how to stay empowered and creative, and sane.
