Among today's ongoing discussion about the power of restraint when reporting - restraint when communicating, judging, learning -  a recent video shared by @historyinmemes on Twitter has come to mind. In the clip, Prince, at the 1999 "Yahoo! Internet Life Online Music Awards," paused while presenting an award for "Online Pioneer." He shares his ominous concerns over the over-use and over-dependency people at that time were giving the World Wide Web. Who would have thought how much that dependency would grow over the next two decades, as his warning continues to resonate with crowds today?
