We evo from crimps so naturally curious & like to explore. With tech so new why is current behavior not as easily described as just reflection of novelty as we learn to use i.e. common human behavior when confronted w/the novel?


Hi, Dan. Thanks for your comment. I think it is irresponsible to Tweet or reTweet something you dont know is accurate or not, or probably more commonly, dont care. I agree with what the io9 post has to say about this practice.

It reminds me of gossip. It gets passed along and passed along until it begins to seem true, regardless of if it is.

In my arena of the brain and conflict resolution, erroneous information is often passed along. I think there is an issue of integrity involved in what you communicate to others.
