    I don’t like the compression of communication because I want to get my words across efficiently, effectively, and intelligently. Limiting characters does not allow me to get my point across, and shortening my words is out of the question. I’m very wordy.

    “Our brain chemistry is different now and you can’t expect a large portion of the planet to sit down and read a 500 page novel anymore” I don’t think its because our brain chemistry is necessarily different, but because the human race has become obsessed with quick satisfaction and entertainment. Also, we are simply growing more lazy an ignorant.

    Social networking today is far from perfect, can’t wait until there is one useful enough to actually use in real life – one that doesn’t consume you, and isn’t so demanding. Facebook and Tweeter’s culture are too audience oriented, there really is a need for a more personal network.

    Persay rather than moving on a different level. The speed of communication on the lingual level will be most efficient when telepathy becomes accessible to the majority of humankind. If all of humanity is connected then a level of functioning improves to move forward more or really deal with global ambitions, goals, hypothesis, etc in a more efficient manner. Sort of the individual organism being the neuron of the world in biological terms or excuse my inadequacy- router, as her said, of commu

    I think what he means by compression is the improvement in efficiency of communication. The lag of time between communication of ideas. The idea of hitting a wall is unrealistic since efficiency through a biological viewpoint as well as evolutionary viewpoint is the continuing improvement of communication. A major ingredient that allows for advancement of species, as seen with evolution of the nervous system from nerve nets to us now. There essentially isn’t a barrier just a higher plane of co

    You should really have paid better attention because you basically just validated his point.

    Being “smart” has nothing to do with being a good speaker. The guy is an artist not an entertainer or orator. He is certainly not “poorly spoken,” he has a great vocabulary and provides some really amazing insights. You are childish and seem kind of superficial.

    He’s kind of right I guess, altough people often compare themselfs to other people, they don’t really need a social network for that.
