Yuppers — antithesis to communion, a.k.a. “being with”

Curious if you’ll get a response to this particular point, Faruk Ateş, from elizabeth tobey. I’ve posted repeatedly about it with no acknowledgement to date, but perhaps my attempt to explain the limitations has fallen short! Seems to me you’ve nailed it.

You’ve also explained the benefits of truly communal engagement better than I have. Go man go! The key difference, it seems to me, is that Medium is biased towards information as the organizer of “tribes” (taking into account the concern of tribalism mentioned by Cherie Renae) rather than relationships generating culture.

If Medium is only another extension of infocentrism, it can’t help society evolve through this awfully intense era and the transitions it demands.
