I’ve been around the Net, in one guise or another, for almost ten years now. I remember when Gopher was the coolest thing going. I remember the hey-days of Usenet, and the wonderful days of yore when people thought that simple shame would deter spammers. I’ve used FTP, I used the Web in its early days when NCSA Mosaic was the only browser. I’ve seen the oncoming of blogging. And yet….
Nothing I have ever seen or done online has risen to the level of this. It’s all downhill from here, folks. Would the last person off the Net please turn out the lights?
