As an active member of the internet generation, I have to say that the internet has done a lot to screw me up, mostly because I found 4chan early.

That was a boring read. It feels like - mind, I don't really know anything about the author - he picked a lot of different subjects, magnified them all, and happened to be right on a few things because they followed through to their natural conclusion. It was reminiscent of flipping through college textbooks from the 80s - silly predictions mixed in with ones that happened. I'm so surprised.

According to J de Silva's GIDBlog post, not all the pages related to a search query are being returned. From the article: "If I search Google for [site:gidforums.com auto add slashes], i.e. restricting the search to only my web site, GIDForums, I expect it to return this page, but according to Googles Custom Search Engine, that page doesnt even exist! Notice that its not listed at all; not filtered, and not even stuck inside their infamous supplemental results. But its an old page! In fact the page is very old over 4 years old, actually and Google indexed this page very soon after it was written, and even referred people to the page for at least a couple of years, or more. So why did they remove it? What happened?""
