Column 20: Internet

The place we call the Internet has slipped away from some of its promise in recent days, resulting in a new reality for vid. Many of the most important vids of the last ten or so lose impact; But will probably be remembered regardless.

What may happen, and reality is quickly superseding the pace of technology (the former belweather of human progress, in a way) is a new future, although we have to work with the stumbling blocks to that new 'future.'

No future stinks so.

The new future seems to be a faster place, so we'll have to keep up with what already feels like mild insanity.
