How would you like it if everywhere you turned, people were discussing you in the past tense. Sort of like, ah, the World-Wide Web, I knew it well, that sort of thing? We believe the death knell for the Web has rung many times (no, you have to do some research on your own; we do not want you to become dependent on us), usually by those who have something to gain from a new, improved system. We’re not naming names, but we recall a certain software giant mentioning the very same thing not too long ago.

The cool thing about the Internet is that it doesn’t reside in a single location. You cannot visit a building called “The Internet.” Hmm, perhaps you can, what with today’s crazy fads, but you won’t find what you expect (unless you expect lots of vodka and interesting foods). The infrastructure of the network may change — it has to change — but it will not die if immediate action is not taken. Beware partisan interests when reporting news. In the meantime, enjoy the Web as you have always done. Experts will be working day and night to ensure your entertainment is uninterrupted.
