This is cool :: Urban Spam
Food for thought.
Maybe its time to fight back? But how can we fight back against this... if we are part of the problem?
Do we stop consuming? If so, how?
We are no longer self-sufficient. I don't know about you... but I can not build a cabin or make the kind of things Charles Ingalls can. His day is gone. I don't have the skill set required to barter my time for something in return. I must work to pay the bills. I must consume.
What's more... how come I reject this kind of spam and yet happily sign up for emails / tweets from companies I support?
Choice. Its spam if we do not choose to receive it. If we do not accept it.
So how do we reject it? How do we fight back when we ourselves are walking billboards for the stuff we like?
I don't know. Any ideas?
