I was going to write about how Wired Magazine made an interesting point about how the use of the Web is dwindling due to the popularization of mobile apps, which is of course a direct result of our information hunter-gatherer culture where keyboards and ethernet chords have been eschewed for the pocket-friendly, 4G mini tablets that we used to call phones. However, the Web, being the cruel bitch that she is, discouraged me from contributing my weekly minutia to the sphere of blogs because apparently everyone else has brought their two cents to the bank and are collecting interest.
Fuck you Web for beating me to the punch with your smug all-powerful intelligence and the ability to be in any and all places without anyone being the wiser!
But guess what? This is where Wired’s argument has a gaping hole. Hence, the title of today’s post. Wait for it……..
There! One case who represents the silent majority of Web content that can only be discovered by farting around the Internet without any real goal in mind. I’m not saying to Hell with mobile apps, but unpredictability still exists online. And if you believe that a Violinist who drops a killer track on the Internet with no one around to hear it can’t possibly make a sound (without sufficient old media coverage – like with Antoine Dodson) then I say to you non-believers to shut the hell up and give a listen, because the Web may be dead to those goal-oriented prudes, but to Web scavengers, the clinically bored, and those with a penchant for clicking hyperlinks, prepare to be entertained in a way that you could have never preconceived.
Welcome back to the Web fools!
