the dawn of Infinity

From an age of finite books with endings to a new era of the infinite internet with only beginnings, we’re living in a time unlike any other.  Since the dawn of the printing press there has never been a time in all of human history where people are as globally connected as they are today.  The greatest tool for free speech, expression and transparency the world has ever known only recently developed in our lifetime.  Despite global economic calamity, our generation is arguably facing an era much like the industrial revolution, except digital.

It’s the information and free expression insurgency that led to what inspired the idea of Infinity.  As journalism shifts in this new age of online media, people, companies and governments grapple with something that is in no way physically tangible but rather limitless and permanent: truly infinite.  Not only is this conversation incredibly fascinating, it’s what’s driving the future.

No matter what you may think of the late Andrew Breitbart, a revolutionary New media trailblazer, he wanted to show that the media has failed in its most basic duties: to uncover the truth, and hold those in power accountable, regardless of party.

Here in The Divided States of America, we have such a tenacious polarization between Right and Left that really, much of the blame lies with those who were supposed to be truth-tellers, holding the world responsible regardless of personal or corporate positions, investments and beliefs.   Continue reading “who guards the guardians?” »
