John Maeda on "post digital":
I am often asked what my term "post digital" signifies. It is a term that I created as a way to acknowledge a distinction between those that are passed their fascination with computers, and are now driven by the ideas instead of the technology. It is not an expression of Luddite-ism nor is it a loaded term like that icky "post modernism" business. If we are to consider the book by Nicholas Negroponte Being Digital as an affirmation that the computer has arrived, then the "post digital" generation refers to the growing few that have already been digital, and are now more interested in Being Human. Buying a good computer is easy. Being a good person is something that cannot be merely bought ... even on the great god of eBay.
