Hossein Derakhshan

I miss when people took time to be exposed to opinions other than their own, and bothered to read more than a paragraph or 140 characters. I miss the days when I could write something on my own blog, publish on my own domain, without taking an equal time to promote it on numerous social networks; when nobody cared about likes and reshares, and best time to post.

Iran’s blogfather: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are killing the web

“Biarlah hati ini patah karena sarat dengan beban, dan biarlah dia meledak karena ketegangan. Pada akhirnya perbuatan manusia menentukan, yang mengawali dan mengakhiri. Bagiku, kata-kata hiburan hanya sekedar membasuh kaki. Memang menyegarkan. Tapi tiada arti.”
