the Internet is making people see the world more like journalists, isn't it?
life as an endless succession of stories, events, talking points...
the endless swelling and crashing of informational surface waves at the shore of the public gaze...
everyone's becoming a critic
some learn to create content too, to be the event/force/signal itself, to transmit, reverse the gaze
but even more passive recievers are often learning the importance of finding a way to interpret those signals
because to learn to read the informational terrain is to to navigate it with advantage
and to gain control and articulation in one's gaze over the terrain is to define it
