Apparently the Internet is Shit:

And look what we've done with it. Food wrappers and soap operas now tell us to visit their websites. Money is pumped online by people who can't even spell HTML. All manner of pointless and irritating content is continually poured down the infinite hole of data, unfiltered and over-appreciated. In accepting freedom of speech, we can't hide from its consequences - which in this case is millions of terabytes of unreliable information, badly designed and clumsily written. We have failed our own creation and given birth something truly awful. We're just too busy cooing over the pram to notice.

I'mn not saying I agree, but go read it and decide for yourself.

Just to point out that this article that bashes internet is itself shit.

"millions of terabytes of unreliable information"

According to google, and Jeremy you are in yahoo so you might know this too, the information on the internet is around 1 or 2 petabytes, which is not millions of terabytes. The author didn't obviously make any investigation on this. To sound "cool" he simply says internet is shit, yet his facts are shit themselves.

another man's sh*t is someone's treasure, or at least vision of treasure's.. The Internet (and the web) have made global communication accessible and easy, so lets not get too critical about what we deem is or is not acceptable content...Remember its a pull technology, you can skip all the rift-raft if you desire... hey they're was always prodigy, now that's a system!
