In the age of the network, we are exposed to the patterns of our behaviors—the similarities in what we search for, the rhythms of how and what we communicate, and the way that tiny unconscious cues shape the way we act.
How does exposure to the network impact the way you think about creativity and individuality?
Mark gave the final word
Individuality is a bit of a red herring. We’ve all got that. The network can bring us face to face with ways in which we aren’t unique, much more easily than it can show us how we are. It can make you feel like you don’t have anything to add, and that even if you did it’s a cacophony anyway, who would listen? But it’s not one big cacophony, it’s lots of small bands playing at once, and you can tune in to the ones you like.
