What happens when the internet disappears?


Digital Business Trends - Austria

Körper werden zur Benutzerschnittstelle, Identitäten künftig austauschbar – Schon 2020 „kann man ausprobieren, wie es sich anfühlt, jemand anderer zu sein“. Das „sichtbare Internet“ könnte es schon bald nicht mehr geben. „Es verschwindet. Unsere Körper werden zur digitalen Schnittstelle. Wir sind das Internet, unsere Freunde Webseiten und unsere Familienmitglieder Apps“, erklärte der US-Amerikaner Chris Dancy, der praktisch rund um die Uhr über Sensoren und digitale Geräte „online“ ist, bei einem VIP-Event der Plattform „Digital Business Trends“ (DBT) gestern, Donnerstag, in Wien.

Social Media Breakfast: Chris Dancy

“As humans, I think we prefer consistently average experiences over inconsistently good ones. Dealing with humans is inconsistently wonderful. Dealing with machines is consistently average. We’ll take consistently average over inconsistently happy any day,” said Dancy. Reaching beyond the novelty of data collection and wearable technology, Dancy described the connection between available information about our lives and the influence this data can have on our health and happiness.
