I dream of a new age of curiosity. We have the technical means for it; the desire is there; the things to be known are infinite; the people who can employ themselves at this task exist. What are we suffering from? From too little: from channels that are too narrow, skimpy, quasi-monopolistic, insufficient. There is no point in adopting a protectionist attitude, to prevent “bad” information from invading and suffocating the “good”. Rather we must multiply the paths and the possibility of comings and goings… Which doesn’t mean, as is often feared, the homogenization and leveling from below. But on the contrary, the differentiation and simultaneity of different networks.
