The blunt honest truth about the internet

If this blog disappeared tomorrow, some people I know personally would be confused for about a week (because they read my blog often,) but then completely forget about it. In other words, no one would care.

If MySpace and/or Facebook disappeared tomorrow, people would get a bit ticked off for a week, then not care about it, then forget it completely.

If YouTube disappeared tomorrow, there would be a huge uproar in the online video community. That would last for about two weeks. Then people would move on to something else and forget YouTube ever existed. And yes, they would forget it that quickly.

If all instant messaging (AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo, etc.) disappeared tomorrow, there would be a huge uproar in the entire internet community. This would last for about a month. Probably less. After that no one would care.

If Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail and/or Gmail disappeared tomorrow, that would cause more of a ruckus compared to anything else mentioned above. E-Mail is the one thing that trumps all else on the internet as far as importance is concerned.

. . .

Yep, you heard it right: E-Mail rules above all else. That’s what matters.

You can fill up the internet with messaging, audio, video and all the “social networking” you want, but at the end of the day if e-mail was gone - that’s the one people consider to be a vital use of the internet.

And that’s why e-mail will never go away; it’s the one thing you can 100% be sure of that will stay on the internet for as long as it exists.

Why is guitar intonation so important?
Guitar intonation can be the deciding factor not only when buying a guitar from the guitar store, but also be the thing that makes you fall in or out of love with a guitar you already own.

900GB Geocities torrent - but wish there was an HTML-only "lite" version
ArchiveTeam has decided to do something pretty ballsy: They're releasing a 900GB torrent of all the old Geocities files. Yes, that's right, 900GB. As in 900 gigabytes of data. I have absolutely no idea how long it would take to seed that, much less download it. Will people download it? I won't (I don't have […]

Would the Charvel Surfcaster be desirable as a new guitar today?
Ah, the 1990s. Kind of a weird time for guitars because it was a period where old was old and new was weird. And then Charvel comes out of seemingly nowhere with 1950s-inspired design.
