From: California

Bio: Internet user, computer programmer (internet technology)

Area of Expertise: Technology Developer/Administrator

Topic: Community/Culture

Headline: Polorized behavior

Nutshell: Increasingly bizzare human behavior.

Vision: With the increased capacity to communicate, humans will continue to push the boundaries of bizarre behavior. We are already seeing this develop with television. Reality shows have become extremely popular...and this has already been seen in the internet. "Flash mobs" have emerged from the ablity of humans with non-similar backgrounds whom would normally not meet, to come together. This will continue to evolve and broaden.
