Are We Ants or Are We Avatars?

Something about Twitter recently has made me feel like a minuscule and insignificant ant scurrying from data crumb to data crumb in the semi-aware hive-consciousness of social networking. Perhaps, like the ants who created the artifact discovered in this video, there is some greater whole that is being created. Maybe not. In any case, this glimpse under the surface is a very humbling look at the work of "mere" ants.

I really love the analogy you made here. I feel slightly less miniscule now. : )
