The human species is undergoing radical change. The Internet is almost a test run for this change. I don't think the Internet, in this sense, is such a major deal at all. The Internet is a way to practice what it is that we're going to have to do for real, which is deal with privacy when we can all read each other's thoughts, deal with a global community when we're all realizing that we're part of the same thing. The Internet is like a good, dry, safe way for scared white people to experience community again, after we've been so isolated through television.
