Weekend Ed. Quote ~ August 14

“We now live in a world where we have public lives and private lives — and for over a century now, since roughly the point at which the above article appeared, the portion of our lives considered ‘public’ has been expanding, while the portion of our lives we can consider ‘private’ has been contracting… Never before have we faced so many opportunities to turn the formerly-private into the newly-public. As those opportunities arise, many people adopt them, and turn “public” into the new norm for such activities. Eventually, the norms become societally entrenched,” ~Felix Salmon
