I had a great time at FutureFest this weekend  so here’s a parting gift for everyone I met there.

I came across this cartoon by Beck (@new_toon) a couple of weeks ago.

It amused me because it exactly reflects the scene I describe in the very last paragraph of Technobiophilia where I’m on the beach at sunset taking photos and lots of other people are doing exactly the same. Then we’ll all share our pictures on Facebook.

“As I gazed out to sea I thought about how we pour our pictures into the bottomless internet to create a digital ocean of photographs: sunsets, waves, waterfalls, forests, flowers, gardens, animals and people from every part of the world. Over and over again, cyberspace brings us back to the physical.”
