We Internet Kids (Copy)
On surfing the exponential curve of digitalization, and the crack in the reality of a generation. One leg in the analogue – and the other in the digital age.
Every young, hungry generation shakes up the status quo and wants to reinvent the world. Chance fell to those born in the seventies, as virtual space opened up in front of them.
Today, however, if one penetrates the sugar coating of liking, following, sharing and happy emojis, it’s clear what has become of this unknown continent, to which we once set out with blind enthusiasm: A cold, controlled and commercial place, permeated by superstructures in which we are trapped.
Time for critical self-reflection. Time to break out of the hamster wheel of the new economy and give space to our slow thinking again. And it is time to recognize: »If we take this chance on, our time need not be a hellish ride on the exponential curve of digital transformation- who’d really want that? Rather, we could then see it as the era in which knowledge comes to a full circle. «
