A Visual Guide to the Deep and Dark Web by Dave LeClair

The Internet is a strange place. It's an awesome place that's filled with all kinds of great entertainment, useful knowledge, and cat pictures, but the Internet has a darker side, too.

Ah, the vasty, vasty deep....be sure you seen all the Pirates of the Carribean movies before you go down there....I recommend an extremely fortified submersible and a round-trip ticket purchased before hand....don't expect to hear from anyone, no one is going to answer you....but you can use 'sonar' and 'ultrasound' , who knows, maybe next trip??? As always, IRL and VR, nothing is as it seems:)

Connecting the world

Connecting the world | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
In the past quarter of a century the internet has gone from an academic curiosity to—in the rich world at least—an omnipresent utility. Yet worldwide, around 57% of people are offline. In Africa, the figure is 79% (see chart).Getting people online is important. But it is also difficult. Many live in rural areas, where providing infrastructure is harder than in densely populated cities (some rural folk in rich countries struggle with internet access for the same reason).
nukem777's insight:

" Beginning in 2016, though, a clutch of tech firms hope to change that, and to provide internet access to almost everyone on the planet."

Should we sacrifice our brains to the Internet?

Should we sacrifice our brains to the Internet? | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

One of the greatest effects of the Internet is its ability to capture our attention only to scatter it, ultimately producing a generation whose brains are being better hardwired to scan, skim and multitask, causing a weakening in our ability to read and think deeply in a concentrated manner.

What will the internet look like in 2040?

What will the internet look like in 2040? | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

A journalist recently asked me what I think the internet will look like in 2040. The question took me a little by surprise, because despite working in the technology industry for the last two years and witnessing the drastic changes that have taken place, I’ve never really taken a step back from it all and thought what the world might be like in ten years, let alone 25 years.

Beth Kanter's comment, January 21, 2012 12:47 PM
Jan,
This is a terrific summary of the infographic. My feeling is that transparency is not a black and white definition of - disclosing everything or disclosing nothing. There's lots of shades of gray. I like the definition of transparency from "Public Parts" that Jeff Jarvis published last year - it also includes engaging with people around what you disclose. I think there is a place for being anonymous - especially when the information you disclose might put you in physical danger. Have written a lot about transparency - about the practice in my first book and in my second book how to measure it http://www.bethkanter.org/power-light/
