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.

You're too kind :-)

FYI, I run everything financial through the checkout on, which is my company. Don’t worry, it’s still me, it’s just easier for accounting for it to be all under that.

Hey there, good looking. Sorry to interrupt.

Wanna Subscribe?

Thanks for reading my stuff. Seriously. I’m eternally grateful. Yes, I know, subscribing means more bloody email. But do subscribe, and if you’re feeling generous, you can leave a donation (this is my company site that powers the checkout. Don’t worry, it’s still me, I just hate admin). I am completely independent and whilst support is never expected, it is always appreciated.
