on the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.

“On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog,” one dog muttered to another, in a Peter Steiner cartoon from 1993.

And it’s true — the internet has made the world a small kennel, where a sniff is a click away.   Social networking?  SEO?  I didn’t even know these terms 3 or so years ago.  It’s easy to point out that the internet virtually has everything, but in providing everything, is it choking the passerby with all the choices?  Like a hungry man in a 5-minute-all-you-can-eat buffet, there’s simply too much good stuff to take in all at once.

Something I’ve noticed though, as video games overthrew the comicbook as favorite past time, TV has always been there.  Regardless of all the bad shit they have on, it’s still going strong.  That’s why statements like “Youtube’s going to make TV obsolete” aren’t taken seriously.  That, coupled with the sudden abundance of social bookmarking sites can only have one conclusion: the internet is struggling to be more interesting.

It’s become a place where original content is broken down into excerpts, referenced to itself and vice versa.  Where content is king, and audience participation is a must.
