Some quotes from a blog post, "On the new generation”
A sufficiently sensitive mind can pick up GPS coordinate signals from space. Neurons are, physiologically speaking, capable of detecting electromagnetic radiation. This is established fact. Except it doesn’t happen – until recently there was no advantage. On an evolutionary scale, GPS broadcasts have only just arrived. For the previous million milennia, electromagnetic signals were nothing but noise.
The browsing mentality simply doesn’t exist for the Gen 10’er. They inhabit a world of results, context-free remarks, recommendations and lists. It’s all about finding what they want. Some people try alleviate this with software. They call it accelerated serendipity, but they’re missing the point. Serendipity is so last decade. Finding is where it’s at now. From an empty box.
