During Webmaster World last week I had the opportunity to see what surely must be the best show in vegas : Blue Man Group. I’ve found other shows failed to meet the expectations I had. Not so in this case. The experience was moving and thought provoking.
The Blue Men are puzzled or indifferent to the physical world around them. They might be space aliens or time travelers. They might understand some of the world they see, and choose to remain above it, or they really don’t grasp it at all. One can imagine a future in which human interaction looks more and more like this, with online being the only place we’re really comfortable. While I enjoy the online world a lot, such a future frankly scares me.
I highly recommend the show. Whether you treat it as intellectual or just plain fun, it’s great.
