I finished Jaron Lanier’s Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now a couple of days ago. There were a number of times while reading the book, particularly when Lanier hit a social-relationship beat, where this plot-line from Community came to mind. Behold: MeowMeowBeenz.
The fifth-season episode turned into a great sci-fi/social commentary episode that we would all do well to watch at some point.
I’ll get my thoughts on Lanier’s book together soon.
