Elvin Antecedents   [ditty]

He'd blogged since long before there were an internet
his blogging took the form of quiet thinking
instead of surfing   well   he favored drinking
his networking was more a kind of kinder-net
a seeking out of children like himself
I'm not sure if I mentioned he's an elf

The Internet certainly has changed things. For me it's helped to bring me back into the pulse of life going on in America. Germany, and the province town I lived in during the 80's/90's, was an enitirely different universe. America didn't exist anymore.

Ah --
and it exists again, hmm?

You're now living in Berlin I think?

Cultural consequences of the internet seem incalculable.

As I remarked to a friend this morning [remarked literally, not, in this case, in form of an internet "remark"; an explanation the need for which seems germane to the point here] -- it's as ubiquitous as water & electricity. (A mild hyperbole, at most.)
