“Active & interactive communication is the order of the day.
From the shortest texts & tweets to the humblest website,
to the angriest blog, to the most visited social networks,
the daily communications of the wired world attest that
everyone is now in the business of relentless self-promotion—
presenting themselves, explaining themselves, defending themselves,
selling themselves or sharing their inner thoughts & emotions as never before in human history.
The great goals of life, we are told, are to gain the widest possible public attention
and to reach as many people in the world with our products—
and always, our leading product is Us.”
