It’s frightening to think that the Internet now has a history. Not just a technical history, but a cultural history. I wasn’t fully prepared for that. There were CB radios, then BBSes, and then grunge, then the Internet, and then I guess I thought there would be something else. Nudism or something. But the Internet, it turns out, is forever (as far as all present are concerned). It is a macro-development, not a micro-trend, and as such, it even has a literary history.
Today on Google+, I consider the Golden Age of Online Writing. (Hint: We’re not in it.)
