This got me thinking... The internet has become this all purpose location where all various aspects of your life are stored.
A place where your friends, activities, thoughts, actions and interests intertwine and tangle up on a daily basis.
It feels like the'internet' is such an old style name for a modern thing. Like looking at the millions of things your desktop can do, and still calling it a 'computer'. A name that even predates the warehouse sized leviathons of the 1940s.
'The internet' (or 'Teh Interwebz') implies linked networks and computers in a way that no longer happens.
I want to start a campaign to change the name to something more appropriate. A name that describes the intertwined nature of our online prescence.
Or, more specifically.
Noel Edmunds' Beard
Think about it: "I'm browsing the Edmunds" "Surfing the NEB"... what's not to like?
