A good website, Mr. Ripps said, “is one that understands that users are sitting there, possibly in their underwear, in a dark cave, feeling alone together. One that can connect with people on that level. It’s like with music, like when you listen to a song and you cry because it understands you.”

“We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infinitesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.”
-Alan Watts

Trust

Trust on the Network = reliability, consistency, and speed.

It’s important to lock :P down all the touch points you have with your potential customers and how you can gain or lose their trust.

"We have so much information available to us online we can use it to do anything. I’m trying to get better and better by learning everything with what is already there. Can you imagine what we can achieve if we just decide to use all that information"
