Online the interactions we have with each other are very deliberate and premeditated. From the polished digital profiles we wear for ourselves, we send volleys of considered messages back and forth to one another. I think and then I respond to you. You think and then respond to me in turn. There is little room for instinct or the unexpected in our interactions online.
Indeed, we are our most authentic and spontaneous selves online when we are privately browsing on our own, flitting from link to link. To capture the serendipity of real life in our very deliberate online interactions, the Oracle comes to life and gifts you a postcard of your true face whenever you land on the same site as someone you know, pulling uncertainty into the otherwise certain.
