Note: I wrote this a while ago, and it's been sitting in the post buffer.  Finally posting it on 5/10/07

So this little website is a place where I throw semi-stream-of-consciosness... stuffs. It's mostly worthless, of little informative value, of little social relevence... well, it's basically a waste of electrons.

I was feeling somewhat bad about my abuse of the interwebs until I learned a little more about something called livejournal.

Livejournal and etherized.com both highlight a fundamental flaw in this great age of enlightenment and happy-lovey information orgy - that is, most things you'll ever find anywhere are crap.

Google is perhaps our best hope, but in spite of that the signal to noise ratio keeps dropping rapidly. Case in point - the tampering of the Wikipedia by members of the US congress. Ever wonder what we're paying those guys to do up in Washington? I often do - and apparently they've got time to burn spreading disinformation on the internet.

But all of this brings up the fundamental problem - a vast majority of human works are crap. You heard right. From your third rate soft-core porn ebooks to your whiny, self absorbed monologues, it's mostly useless.

The thing is, we all want to leave our mark, somehow. Some people can and should - other people can't and shouldn't bother. The internet gives us all a nice place to dump things - and there they sit, for years, just getting in the way.
