How Do You Know I’m Human?

February 24, 2011

It’s bad enough with all the trolls out there.

Civilized, informed give and take; exchange of ideas; the stimulation and innovation of rational, reasonable conversation; these are the facets of human socializing that improve our selves and our species.

Things are different online. If we send an email to our local representative or comment on an article we’ve read, we are in direct competition with non-human input whose volume far exceeds that of real people. And decisions are based on numbers.

So, what can we do?  Ideas, anyone?
