Thank you putting the invisible into words
I’m from the generation who grew up in the internet, so “machine drift” and my own thought process, tastes, and personality are one and the same. I never found it unusual, was never wary of it, because I never had an experience without it. I’ve been on the internet since I was four years old. Now, at 21, after deciding to step back from social media permanently, I find myself almost desolate of any inherent, genuine interests; I’m lost and confused because everything I have ever said, done, and thought, I’ve done due and for the internet. My whole freaking life. I’d like to thank this podcast for being with me in this journey of literally discovering who I am within and beyond the internet. It’s so weird to be learning about my norm, but it’s important to make sense of it, because it’s still evolving, and whether the world likes it or not, we’re gonna come along for the ride. Right? So excited for the next episode!
