Submission + - What Turned Jaron Lanier Against the Web (smithsonianmag.com)

i_want_you_to_throw_ writes: "Details of Jaron Lanier's crusade against Web 2.0 continues in an article at Smithsonian Magazine. The article, entitled "What Turned Jaron Lanier Against the Web" continues Lanier's rant against Web 2.0. It's a mostly interesting read with Lanier suggesting we are outsourcing ourselves into insignificant advertising-fodder and making an audacious connection between techno-utopianism, the rise of the machines and the Great Recession."

Marvelous! The super-user's going to boot me! What a finely tuned response to the situation!
