The Button

Have y’all been following the insanity around The Button on reddit?  Here’s a story about it the day after it launched.  Here’s a video about it by reddit.  And here’s what I think is really going on.  I haven’t pressed the button yet, and, to be honest, I don’t really feel any compunction to.  But I do love how a whole series of “religions” have popped up around if and when people have pressed the button.  I mean, just look at how intricately differentiated some of these groups are.  Absolutely fascinating to me how quickly all this organization sprung up.

I asked Canelli what he thought of this, but so far, all I’ve gotten out of him about this is this:

We’re all gonna die. But we were all gonna die anyway.

People, there are no short cuts to enlightenment.

    I have nothing else to say. I pushed the button almost as soon as I saw it, not knowing what it was, then closed the tab and didn’t think more about it.
