Comments on: Why I am WEIRD – and you probably are too http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/nighthawk/?p=15752 Roger Darlington's personal blog Mon, 06 Oct 2014 09:26:26 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=6.0 By: Calvin Allen http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/nighthawk/?p=15752&cpage=1#comment-38146 Mon, 06 Oct 2014 09:26:26 +0000 http://www.rogerdarlington.me.uk/nighthawk/?p=15752#comment-38146 Ah – but surely that makes both of you WIRED rather than WEIRD… (Haven’t read the article in question, but I never could understand the need for articles to seek to beat us up with such terminology about things that, while they make those who qualify exceptional in some way, are – for the most part – actually to be desired).

Perhaps in time one will need to use the ‘I’ in WEIRD to stand for Internet-enabled than for Industrialised.

Another important fact for all of us people devoted to the wonders of the web – there are more people living on this planet who have never used the internet that people who have used it. 61% of the world’s inhabitants have never used the internet. Now that feels like a weird fact especially to someone who is WEIRD.
