We have seen the future, and it is exactly as you suspect. Yes, too much traffic, too little time, and far too much Internet for anyone to ever read. Also, in the future, there will be more writers than ever before. Hopefully, unlike our evil spammers (still stupid), they will all know that there is no “d” in interesting.

For those looking for a thumbnail review of the future, we can help: it is Cory Doctorow. Hmm, somehow that’s not as comforting as it should be.
