The Internet's Midlife Crisis

The Internet can be fun again

Remember way back when the Internet first became popular? Its main use seemed to be downloading videos of monkeys doing weird things and people having accidents on their skateboards? The Internet was young and it was fun.

Then things got serious. The Internet had to get a job, move out of its parents house and be an adult. Well, maybe its time for a mid life crisis for the Internet. Sure, the Internet is a great tool for large companies to show off and sell their wares. It's a great tool for small business to compete on a local scale. It's also a great tool for people to share online and to communicate with others. Etcetera etcetera. But, it's also a great tool for just having fun and goofing off.

I have a few suggestions for an Internet midlife crisis. WahWahWahWah.com is a website where you can enter yourself or someone else as the worlds worst...whatever it is. I found this gem and entered 5 people I know. This got me searching the Internet again. I found some new ones and eventually settled on a few oldies but goodies. Websites that I hadn't in been to in a few years. The Onion, FailBlog and others were soon on the radar again.

So, let's all take a break from our 'very serious' conversations about how cloud computing can enhance the blah blah blah...and just revisit some of those old sites thatwe love to laugh at. And discover some new ones too. The Internet truly can be fun.

Have fun.
