You can now do pretty much everything you ever wanted, and learn anything, and meet anyone, online. But does that lead to a paralysis of choice, and that scarcity invites luxury - the ability to waste time on just a few known sites?
In the decade since I took that computer class, the web browser has taken over the entire computing experience. There is nothing to "learn" about computers, really, except how to use a browser; everything you might want to do is done from that stupid empty address bar. Today, through that web browser, there are movies and TV shows and every song ever recorded; it's where I do my writing and chatting and messaging; it's where my notes and calendars and social networks live. It's everything except fun.Dan Nosowitz
