If the net died….
…..what would become of us bloggers?
According to Paul Di Filippo, the downfall of the net (“chaos of viruses, worms, spam, terrorism and busts by the FBI anti-porn squad”) makes bloggers become crazy street-people that people fear:
I HAD TO run a few errands downtown, but I hesitated to go.
What if I ran into bloggers?
Ever since the total, irretrievable collapse of the Internet in a chaos of viruses, worms, spam, terrorism and busts by the FBI anti-porn squad, that archaic species of human had become a bigger street menace than mimes, Jehovah’s Witnesses, or panhandlers ever were.
Still, I had some banking business that had to be conducted in person, and I couldn’t put it off much longer. And I hated feeling like a prisoner in my own house, living in fear of the depradations of this class of homeless attention-grabbers.
This is good.
