With this in mind, I’ve been watching the swirl over Twitter, Facebook, the future of search, Second Life, radio, the music industry, the electric automobile, and television. Not only is the debate about our technology future downright confusing, it’s downright nasty. Technology has become our new religion, our new politics. To say you support “open source” in certain cocktail settings is like saying you would like to see a socialist President, or suggesting that only Christians can get into heaven. It’s brutal out there.
