The 'Net' and its implications


Recommended Posts

I was pondering on the implications of the internet the way there was a 'flash' thingy at Liverpool st station when 25,000 people came from all over the country to act out some advert.

Also the way it is putting shops out of business because of its trading efficiency from industrial parks etc, and not having to pay the premium costs of the shop rent and rates.

The biggest thing or the most worrying possibility was releasing some information which might trigger some kind of cataclysmic slide of a currency, which might lead to a domino effect and spread say to worldwide proportions.

Santerme thinks things should remain undercover and secret like in the wikileaks thread, and I can understand his point of view, to a degree.

Do you believe that it could trigger some irreversible damage which no one could control?

    • When I watch the clouds from my window they quite often appear like very slow-moving lines of vehicles on a multi-lane highway, gradually edging forward. So I was rather doubtful when I just now saw them creep forward a very small amount, pause a short while, and then make a small reverse, more or less back to the point they'd advanced from.  Another pause, and then the same repeated.  And again and again.   More perhaps like a small moored boat, being blown by the wind.  I don't at this moment remember seeing anything quite like that before, at least for it to seem so memorable, though possibly i have, and forgotten. I doubt it's peculiar to Dulwich, but Dulwich is where I happen to be, and it is nature.  So hello clouds.  
    • Looking for single mattresses. Thanks 
    • Hi, I'm going to a wedding and would like to srub up a bit. Can someone recommend a reasonable but nice salon in East Dulwich/Peckham Rye/Camberwell? I'd like a manicure and pedicure, and some sort of eyebrow intervention.  Many thanks.
