In a complex system where personal details are mixed with the most outlandish theories ever subscribed to by humankind, and beyond, if the stories are really true. Navigating a successful exploration of the internet can make an entertaining adventure.
In order to learn to sail we could practise in a safe harbour. With close friends and family. As you fly farther from the nest, some amount of independence is required as the rule book opens. The Burbs has it’s own systems and need to know secrets, you need to know where to cruise and how to hang. Then there are the secret groups and the hidden places. These areas, so well hidden from public view that only the chosen are selected seemingly not even to be seen as a member.
The incredible population of this warren of cul-de-sac suburbia that is Facebook, it’s own mass has established itself as a populous in it’s own right. Apart from the system and yet within the system.
