NYC: The Internet's Blueprint?


"Think about it: Serendipitous encounters between people who know each other well, sort of well, and not at all. People of every type, and with every type of agenda, trying to meet up with others who share that same agenda. An environment that's alive at all hours, populated by all types, and is, most of the time, pretty safe. What he was saying, really, was that New York had become the Web. Or perhaps more, even: that New York was the Web before the Web was the Web, characterized by the same free-flowing interaction, 24/7 rhythms, subgroups, and demimondes."

This quote is from an article in this week's New York Magazine. Later this week I will say more in regards to the article's look at loneliness, urbanization, and marriage.

I can sense your anticipation.
