'Magic and Loss: The Internet as Art'

New book explores cultural evolution by way of the internet

In a world increasingly driven by rapid advancement in technological capabilities, it can be a little weird to exist as one of those people who, by accident of birth, straddles the line between those largely disconnected from the internet world and those who have no concept of a world without it.

Bad Internet! No Biscuit!

An information addict's retort

Feeding information into my noggin is one of my greatest motivations for waking up in the morning. If I made a list of such motivations, it would be about third on the list, sitting underneath 1: making my wife laugh and 2: driving my wife insane, and just above pondering the logistics of genetically altering pigs to fly. 

Seriously, bacon airlines. Who's ever thought of it? This guy. Gigantic pigs the size of 757s, and when they can't carry people anymore, we make a humongous platter of bacon, give it to Denny's at just above market price based on the fact that people would pay dollars of dollars to eat formerly flying bacon. I'd be a thousandaire.

The sunny side

When I have downtime, I troll the interwebs where I am involved (in the virtual sense) with a couple of multiples groups online. I've made long-distance friends with several moms of multiples, and we trade tips, ask advice and even swap items (I totally nailed a great deal on a triplet stroller just last week solid).

But one of my friends recently posted about how someone called her fake for posting cute pictures and happy status updates about her life. The notion that someone's life is supposed to precisely mirror their Facebook statuses seems weird to me. With very few exceptions, I don't post pictures of my kids screaming or crying, I don't post pictures of myself looking like a hot mess, I keep my whiny status updates to a minimum (this is subject to debate, I'm sure), and to the untrained eye it may appear that I am just breezing through raising three kids while seamlessly maintaining a job and household. Let me just say, ha!
