I have been Interneting for a long time. I remember when the internet used to go all quiet except for sysadmins over the holiday breaks from school. I mean, I'm no rasterweb, but if you dig around in some of the Usenet and Gopher archives, you might find some stuff I've written. Olhohof BBS, anyone?
But the internet isn't a fun, cutting edge thing anymore. It's this corporate icky litigation factory of deferred liability. Yeah. I guess you're really not anyone on the internet anymore unless you've been caught in a torrent honeypot.
But the point
The point of it all though, still exists. Cheap, de-centralized publishing platforms let the creators within us out. Put our words in the hands of the Everyman. And it's making The Man crazy.
