I’ve been on a Roger Ebert craze lately. I just like the way the man writes. He’s also redeemed himself in my eyes a little bit with this article on the Internet.

“The Internet is in economic crisis, but its brilliance and audacity continue to amaze me. The stories of its decline are stories about money, not technology or communication. If millions of investors felt compelled to throw their cash insanely at Internet investments that made zero economic sense, is that an indictment of the Internet, or a demonstration that they were greedy herd animals?”

I’ll be so happy once the Net returns to the “everybody giving away something for free” model and all the capitalist pigs go home. (That’s a bit extreme, but I’m enjoying the fact that I can now make such statements without being a dotcom-working latte-sipping hypocrite.) 🙂
