Questions

This is the full list of my question-a-week posts on Twitter. If you see no reason I should keep such a list, read this blog post, in which I attempt to explain why it is necessary.

Q1. Online bandwidth is a trickle. Can we adapt to compensate? Are we trapped or have we learned helplessness? Is the cage door open?

Q2. We tell stories every day. > Not me, I'm not a storyteller. > We used to tell more stories. > Not me, I tell stories every day. > ??

Q3. We built the web by hand. Google mined it. Our web links moved to Twitter. After Google mines Twitter, where will our links go next?

Q4. When something becomes easy enough to be common, we see it as ugly. Is mastery itself beautiful? Or is it a distraction from beauty?

Q5. Why do people usually write about "the accelerating pace of change" in middle age? Is it influenced by zenosyne?

Q6. Why does using computers mean peering into boxes? Why doesn't it mean dancing? Imagine: "Of course he's fit; he works on a computer."

Q7. Type "I for one welcome" into Google and see what comes up in the suggestions. [Hint: It's "our new google overlords."][Double hint: It's from the Simpsons. Google it.] Where is George Orwell when we need him?

Q8. Spring is such a pleasant surprise. Hope grows again in the soft new leaves. If there were no seasons, would hope be absent or constant?

Q9. What if you're actually thinking inside a slightly bigger box?
