The Internet is not very bright

Yesterday in this space I mentioned that the Internet isn't very bright. This is why books came first, graduating super early, being something of a prodigy. Then finally photography and radio made it out about on time. TV, notoriously dim and hulking, was held back for a few years, but eventually had to be given a real job, and then last, after ages of remedial education and long stints in Reform School, the Internet was dribbled into the world where it now stands around breathing heavily.

Yes, that's it, right now, lurking back behind you, looking over your shoulder.

"This one sucks." It says in a thick, bored, irritated voice.

If it's right in this case, it is purely by accident.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
