Stephanie Katcher's curator insight, July 26, 2013 6:15 PM

As our life becomes intertwined with our virtual existence we may neglect to realize what happens in sixty seconds is cumulatively astronomical, but intimately pointless. Participation in the information age is vital but the "endless" internet erases the participants ability to rely of clear boundaries and structure. It becomes more and more important that individuals understand their purpose, and their intentions so that they can leverage the digital world to their advantage not their demise.
