The hierarchical, status-based, organized, familiar world is giving way to a dynamic world, rich in interpretations and multi channels that are scattered over the globe.

Essential and powerful connections are created, opposite momentary ones, which are shallow and addictive. Intellectual connections, deep and destined, are created along with of a culture of nonsense and ranting. Relationships between people get a new interpretation.
