Internets

A lot of people bitch about how artificial the world is now-a-days, and I'm one of them. Advertising convinces us to buy things; grammarians convince us to speak certain ways. On the internet, we'll have neither of them.

The Internet and its communities continually satirize the artificial and break convention. They make things that are "real," that weren't created for any particular purpose or reason but to be. People communicate with speed and concision. The good things rise up and the bad things fade away; it's a capitalism of time and attention.
