Stay networked. Get informed. Broadcast your projects.

Vedran made an interesting comment that people join social nets in order to get security. It is the security of not left out. In order to feel safe we have to belong (to family, group, school, company). Belonging gives sense (very often false) of security. Vederan, could it be applied to the social net.

Another broader reflection is about the current status of our "primal/survival" instinct to see and not to be seen. It is survival instinct in the nature (animals, flowers) as well. Does the Internet mean that we face the end of this old principle "to see and not to be seen"? Does it mean that security is provided thorugh "being seen"? More questions will come....

Also Vlada mentioned interesting point about one different type of security. He mentioned that it is important to be a part of social network to have opportunity to control info that others posted about you.
