It's Not an Information Highway

The Internet is not an information Highway.  It is not that orderly.

It is an information ocean.  Vast and chaotic. There are monsters and submerged obstacles below. Storms above.

Changes in technology, culture, companies, law, policy and events  create tides, currents and swells. We find ourselves blown, unexpectedly, into unfriendly ports.

We need to float and navigate. Sometimes we need to swim and sometimes to hold our breath so we don't drown.Unforeseen challenges are always just over the horizon and coming from every angle.

This is not a highway, not even close.

But as bad as it can be, it is important. It is the ultimate source of food for our minds and hearts.
