Five witticisms about the Internet
I culled these tidbits (any many more that you don't want to read) from various places on the 'net.
- Dave Barry wrote that the basic problem with the Internet is that the information was created by people and therefore was suspect. "In other words, the Internet is a lot like CB radio, only with a lot more typing."
- The Internet is so large and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
- The Internet is like Tetris for people who still remember how to read.
- Reading from the Internet is like trying to drink from a fire hose. Posting to the Internet is like trying to shout at people as they go past on a roller coaster. Archiving the Internet is like trying to wash toilet paper.
- Finally, there is the classic New Yorker magazine cartoon showing a dog at the keyboard, with the caption "On the Internet, no one knows you're a dog."
