The me bias
One might hope that after a decade of tireless study of the Internet I could bring some wisdom to it. Were that I could come up with something properly Shakespearean to illuminate this great simulacra grown now into the blood of our lives. But the only one I can come up with is:
The Internet is where everyone has opinions, but only the good ones are impossible.
This is grim. I admit it. But I don't know if it's any worse than Shakespeare's quotes on the Internet. He said:
The more pity that fools may not speak wisely what wise men do foolishly.
Which is complainy, sure, but it's totally about the Internet. Well, it's about me on the Internet at least.
