Maybe I’m odd. Maybe all of us who spend a major portion of our lives interacting or existing in the online world are odd.
But it struck me today: so many of my friends, aquaintances, and co-workers have an absolutely tiny online footprint. They simply can’t be found online. I’m so used to googling someone to find out who they are, what they do, what their interests are, and so forth, that finding nothing is just … weird.
I guess it’s the difference between online producers and consumers: make stuff (content) online, and you’ll be noticed. Don’t, and you’re invisible.
In a global labor economy, invisible is bad.
