16. Narcissism...

The participatory web, message boards, Facebook, blogging, vlogging, etc. have all convinced me that given a moment of free time and a medium of expression, people talk about themselves first, foremost, and given enough time and encouragement, only.

The web didn't make us narcissists, it unshackled our narcissism and gave it a voice.

It amazes me that people are concerned about their digital privacy NOW, since we've been basically broadcasting the finest, most mundane details of our lives for nearly two decades as a matter of personal ego gratification.
