 CLAMOUR* '' '''

WELCOME TO EVERY STUDENT IN THE WORLD Welcome to every Grandparent, Parent and every great citizen in the world :

The Ecosystem 2011. ''Never leave home, without the honor of joining up on 'The World Students Society'. Every student voiced, every single student heard, the entire world over.'' 

THE SHIFT : THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY, for every subject in the world, for sure, closed all social distances and brought the entire humanity caring, and then lovingly together.

For most of you - the entire world over, who have barely left their homes recently, you've had a shockingly busy time, catching up on Sam Daily Times : The Voice Of The Voiceless and The !E-WOW! - The Ecosystem 2011.

To start with, first, there were the hyperactive group texts, which started up some weeks ago with dozens of messages a day from friends about the latest coronavirus news, along with photos of overstuffed pantries.

Then came the FaceTime calls from friends and relatives who were also stuck indoors and trying to stave off loneliness.

It's possible that this boom is in prosocial Internet behavior is temporary, and that grifters and trolls who tend to gloom onto major news events and will swarm in to ruin it.

But it's also possible that after spending years of using technologies that mostly seemed to push us apart, the coronavirus crisis is showing us that the Internet is still capable of pulling us together.

That's why it is so important that everyone - especially older people, students and people in low income communities - has access to these tools.

The digital divide is real, and in the coming months, those without Internet access or devices that can run newer software will be shut out of many digital communities we're building to support one another.

ONE THING WE KNOW FOR CERTAIN IS THAT actively participating in online culture is far better than passively consuming it.

Research shows that people who use social media actively - by sending messages, leaving comments or talking in group chats, for example - report that being happier than those who simply scroll through their feeds, absorbing news stories and viral videos.

Netflix binges and YouTube rabbit holes fine for escapism, but if you're looking to find solace on the Internet, lurking alone won't cut it - you need to contribute.

We also know that not all platforms are created equal. With so much alarming information flying around, private group messages and videoconferences are likely to produce calmer, more nourishing interactions than public platforms like Twitter and Facebook, both of which are designed to amplify content that is outrageous, divisive or otherwise highly engaging.

All over the world, citizen technologists are using to strengthen their offline communities. In San Bernardino, Calif., David Perez created a Facebook group called California Cornavirus Alerts to share local information with its neighbors.

A group of public-school teachers in Mason, Ohio, entered a Google Doc, to share ideas about how to keep teaching students during a state-ordered school closure.

In the Bay Area, people are building  databases to keep track of which senior need help having groceries and prescriptions delivered.

Recently, I called Jaron Lanier, the author and technologist who coined the term ''virtual reality.''
Mr. Lanier, who has been experimenting with building virtual communities for years, said he understood why the idea of moving our offline institutions onto the Internet made some people uncomfortable.

''We saw the Internet turn into this weird, dark manipulative machine,'' he said. ''Naturally, we worry that this could another way to become lost of crazy.''

But he also said that there was reason for cautious optimism, given the creative way people are already finding yo move their real-world support systems online.

''The obvious thing to say'' about the coronavirus, Mr. Lanier said, ''is that people will suffer from a sense of isolation. But there might be some good things.

It could reintroduce people to their families. It might make people a little more grounded. It helps you reappreciate the wealth we have in a place like a home. It's a kind of revelation that we have the good fortune to even be able to do this.''

Mr. Lanier like The World Students Society - the exclusive ownership of every student in the world -, is right.

The Honor and serving of the Latest Global Operational Research on Great Thinking and Writings for the present times, continues. The World Students Society thanks author Kevin Roose.

With respectful dedication to thee Students, Professors and Teachers of the World. See Ya all prepare and register for Great Global Elections on The World Students Society : wssciw.blogspot.com and Twitter - !E-WOW! - The Ecosystem 2011:
