The Internet is a Verb

The Internet is a Verb

More than just a collection of websites,

It is a digital manifestation of who we are,

Our greatest contributions

And our darkest depravity.

To be online is to dance with others

Appreciating the moves of another

And making moves of our own too,

Using it as a tool for our own purposes

While it changes us as we engage with it.

The Internet is a verb

We have made it what it is

By our participation in it,

Mindlessly or otherwise.

We have made it

Simultaneously the most unsafe space on the planet

And a glorious portal to the thriving of

Human life.

Far from being benign

The Internet is a verb,

A sprawling, ever evolving expression

Of who we are.
