I'd also like to thank my various bosses at my crap jobs for making me the cynical bitch that I am...um...

HFS: I have cued the music. You really need to practice for next time, you've gone over the 20 second speech allotment. We have to allow time for the whole blogosphere.....

We've made a great difference to the way society perceives information. I think we've gone a great distance towards balancing the fourth estate. Long live web 2.0.

Thank you Time magazine. I can always count on you to tell me the news 2 years after it happens.

Or more.

Now where did my gift bag o' swag go? And I'm not declaring this on my taxes.

Most rediculous cop-out I've seen in years. Way to phone it in Time Magazine.

I better get an invitation to a fucking party or something. Seriously.

and I am totally putting this on my resume...

I don't think this is a cop out. I think, actually, that it's a testament to what a difference the internet has allowed "anyone" to make.

And you have only to look at last month's elections to see the proof in the pudding. :-)

I still think it's pretty amazing, obviously there are those who do not agree. We are all entitled to an opinion, certainly.

I say let's get the party and swag started.

From probitionate:

"We can make a noticeable difference."

In, or to what?!?

I spend an inordinate amount of time online, so I'm certainly no saint, but really; if it were to go away tomorrow, would the absence of the Internet be that great a loss? How substantive is anything that transpires here? Or maybe the question should be 'What percentage of what transpires on the Web is actually meaningful?' Is most of it any more than water-cooler gabbing/ market-square commerce fancified by keyboards and monitors and modems?

As I'm wont to say, 'It ain't real until you kiss 'em.' Or, as Billy opined, "...full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." Or maybe it's an electronic blankey? And for this we recieve Time's accolades. Wow.
