I remember the first time I ever used the Internet. It was back in... man, it must have been 1994 or 1995. Let me think. It was before 1997. Maybe 1996? Possibly 1995 though.
Anyway, it was at the Adult Learning Centre in Warragul, and I was quite young, and I was rather impressed.
The thing which impressed me the most was the chaotic, random interconnectedness of it all - you could be at a geneaology site (as I was) and a few links later be at something completely different. COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
It was well impressive.
Anyway, slightly less than a decade later, the Internet is a far less impressive place, due in no small part to the fact that ANYONE can have a website. (Oh, snap.)
blogs i read in no real order

The Luggage Van - Sultry New Zealandian Wenches.
Cockeyed.com - A god amongst men.

Danny Yee - This guy's pretty on the ball about a lot of things - particularly in regards to censorship. When I grow up, I want to clone an army of Danny Yees, and play Living Chess and Ultra Golf with them, because Ultra Golf will be pretty fucking popular in the future.
And I'd say that just about wraps it up, linkswise. These are the places that I frequent on a semi-regular basis, and from them... SHIT, man. You could end up fucking anywhere. Happy trails.
