The universe enjoys making webs. Strip away all the fat, and the thing we enjoy most is making webs, too. We begin creating a web as soon as we link one solitary part to another: typical boy-meets-girl (or boy-meets-boy, or girl-meets-girl) scenario, right?
The beauty of any web is that it ends up equal to more than the sum of its parts. That’s because the real action happens not in the nodes themselves, but in the connections between them. Webs tend to grow not only in raw size, but also in density and complexity: more stuff forges more tightly together.
At The Bright Young, we’re fascinated by webs. The internet, of course, is the biggest web we’ve spun. It offers us the ability to connect the once-solitary, and out of those connections, create, develop, and discover. We believe our web is young and offers the possibility of a bright future for anybody lucky enough to find themselves all caught up in it. That’s what we believe.
The Bright Young is a online journal/magazine dedicated to the intrepid exploration of contemporary web culture.
