It was meaningful discussion because each generation have different opinion about the internet and online culture.

The young generation understands the digital media and online culture as like an expansion of our brain. On the other hands, people who grew up in the society before the internet was born are still confusing to the relationship to it.

This world may be changing with hyper high speed, and it will be going to change continuously in the future as well. Today I felt the confusing of higher generation, but the confusing state will be mine a few decades later.


Online, internet culture= DIY culture it is interesting

So many artist in the world, everyone express oneself and share it by using online

Who is audience? And who is the true artist?

The border between pro and Ama is quite unclear in this period. And also, I feel people try to measure the value with money amount.

However some of artists were not appreciated for the audience through a whole of heir life even in the past, such as Van Gogh and Cezanne.

Does it concern to the online culture or not?


This is a point of this book

Internet society makes the world “leaderlessness”, it’s so true.

And I think it related with DIY culture by Internet culture.

We don’t know who is the person we should trust, and who truly has the power. That’s why we lost leader.

I cannot get the meaning right now, but this account moved me.

What is “trolling?’


Is that wisdom?

For me, crowds looks just chose easy way to do or think.
