Happy Sweet 16, Internet.

The Internet turned 16 yesterday.

I thought this was kind of appropriate. When I think about “the internet”, I can certainly liken it to a 16 year old:

  • It is often a place of mystery and bemusement for older generations;
  • it tends to attract predators, bullies and weirdoes who just want to look at teenage boobs;
  • it is often hard to understand the language it sp33ks;
  • it doesn’t work when you want it to;
  • its still not sure what it wants to do when it grows up; and similarly
  • it is at a crossroads in its life where it can really go either way.
