Re: Horse and Buggy Technology
I have to disagree, I been on line before the days of the net starting with BBS, CompuServe and Prodigy. The message traffic was insane at times. The came came the Internet and Usenet. I would spend a good half hour downloading 100s of messages over dial-up. But as the web became more popular I notice message traffic would decrease even thought the growth of the internet was rising exponentially. I remember many fan and popular groups had hundreds of messages became virtual ghost towns.
Human nature tend to isolated into smaller cliques rather to be part a larger community. Why should the use USENET when one can have their very own "pimped out" MySpace page.
