you always see these stats bandied about. you know the type - "there are XXX hundred million websites and another one is created every nanosecond". yet how many do you actually visit?

most days i'll split my browsing time between this place, ebay, macupdate and - if i'm feeling inspired enough to write some drivel - bilge- sook my stupid brain!.

that must be about 0,00000000001% [or even less] of the web pages out there. yet i very rarely come across a new site which merits more than one or two visits, before i revert back to these old standbys again.

i'm coming to the conclusion that the net really is a manifestation of the human race. well over 99,9% of it is a waste of space and the sub-0,1% of it that you actually choose to spend your time with ends up annoying nearly as much of the time as it entertains you.

I wonder if I could play six degrees of separation to associate myself with the entire Web.

I thought MacNN was Internet? Does this imply that there are more Internets?

Seeing that weblogs are taking over the net and filling it with tons of junks no one can ever hope to see anything significant on the web again.

actually, that's not strictly true. i saw a great site the other day where they provided a template graphic - i think it was a laughing town crier, or something like that. anyway, you could then type in a slogan which would appear on the graphic itself. i think you could even save off the graphic after this!

i thought it was a fantastic idea - extremely clever and the kind of thing that could probably take the internet by storm and never get tired or unfunny.

I reached the end of this interweb thing a month or so ago. I'm starting again.

Not to ruin the end of it for everyone, but Dumbledore dies.

In this case, "never" lasted about 15 minutes.
