The Interweb is 20 years old today
20 years ago today the guys at CERN made the WWWeb available to everyone with a computer and modem. You'd think we'd have accomplished a little more with it than we have.
Consider for a moment, we have at our fingertips the whole of human knowledge and what do we use the Web for? Leaving snarky, anonymous comments on blogs, porn, and cat videos. I think this truth illustrates why God has kept Earth sufficiently distant from other civilizations so as not to contaminate them with our vapid self absorption.
We'll be intellectually advanced enough to interact with other worlds when we're technically advanced enough to know how to get there.
