5 Years of the Buddhist Centre Online: #7 Triratna and the Internet

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 27 Jul, 2018 - 10:59

“Media used to be one way. Everyone else in the world just had to listen. Now the internet is allowing what used to be a monologue to become a dialogue. I think that’s healthy”. - Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

“I have one major problem with the internet: it’s full of liars” - John Lydon.

As long as the world wide web has been in mainstream use, debates about the pros and cons of “The Internet” have bubbled - sometimes raged - away. On the one...
