Reading And Revisiting 10/14/18: Douglas Adams’s 1999 essay How To Stop Worrying And Learn To Love The Internet.

 

How to Stop Worrying and Learn to Love the Internet by Douglas Adams is an all time favorite read that I still find enjoyment in. I don’t know if Douglas Adams counted on a handful of large media companies and governments worldwide having such a big lock on everything and using it for so much bad. I also don’t know if he’d counted on how bad the media literacy problem is world wide.  but I’d like to think we’re just still in the Dark Ages and the best is yet to come. Things may get worse before they get better, but I think every word of this article will stand the test of time.

The world was a different place in 1999, and sometimes we tend to forget about that, or if you’re a younger reader that’s an abstract rather than tangible thing to you. It’s history. For me? Yeah. The world is a different place, but people are still people and overall, people, are still good.
