The history of the internet has not been a particularly polite one.
The medium has been used in wonderful ways, and it has also been used in repulsive ways.
Human nature seems to amplify itself when we get online. Our generosity comes to the forefront, but so do our petty differences and our blind spots.
And it seems to me (do you agree?) that the upcoming election in the U.S. is bringing an unusual amount of spite, venom, and rage to the forefront.
It’s ugly out there.
