Antony Mayfield succinctly captures what I’ve been feeling about people’s attitude to the internet over the last year or so:

The other problem we have is we fixate on platforms, like Facebook, Google or Twitter and use them as proxies for the complexity of the web. It would be better to recognise that these are access points to the vast network of networks that is the web, the web that is connecting up all of humanity, all of our knowledge, increasingly all of our objects.

Just one gem in his presentation from TEDxBrighton.
