Yes I think so! Today are we interactive online but most people don’t walk around online. They walk and talk offline. But offline today is anonymous. Already back in the 1960s in the beginning of the Hippie movement where they fare more interactive than al bloggers today. Why? Because they could se how is how when they where walking in real life. They could see how is a hippe, so they could start to interact. Do you see how is a blogger? No! They where fare more interactive than today’s bloggers. Maybe we need to have a blogger look so we can click on each other in the offline world to? Even there symbol could be an early symbol for Internet (total interactive and information freedom). Maybe it was the military that years later theft it but did not want to give credit to the flower power community for inventing the Internet.
Hippie fashions and values had a major effect on culture, influencing popular music, television, film, literature, and the arts. Wikipedia.org
