Sounds like a topic worth a heavy monograph :-) Dave, did you have
anything specific in mind by 'behaviours' (individual? social?
technology-inspired? work-demanded?) and 'us' (Jo Bloggs? designers?
Meanwhile, an inspiration by "Internet Evolution Report"
The quote belongs to Douglas Rushkoff, a professor at the NYU
Interactive Telecommunication Program:
"The biggest changes, as always with new media, will be
metaphorical. It's not that anything in particular we do on the
internet is so important - it's that behaviors we have online
can serve as models for behaviors that change in real life."
So, my quest is: name top three (any number, really) online-born
behaviours that led to most noticeable behavioural changes in real
life. Let's even make it more experience sharing: what are
your personal top three behavioural changes in real life
inspired by online behaviours?
[Eventually, the new behaviours we acquired will dictate our new
technological demands and choices].
Anyone to fire away while some of us take their daily power naps?
