Thoughts on the poll.

I will turn 23 next week.

I gave up on TV years ago=
. I love the medium, but hate the content.
Sure there are a few shows I wat=
ch, but if they were available on the
net, or if I could download them and=
play them on my big monitor, I
mean my TV, when I wanted, I would.

Shor=
t clips, long clips, doesn't matter, the internet actually provides
conten=
t I want to watch.
TV, generally, is run by people who waste every ounce of=
energy, money,
etc catering to the knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing crow=
d.
I hate their content.

As for a source of news? TV news, at least in Ame=
rica, is a whore for
people and forces who want to enslave me/kill me to m=
ake themselves
richer. So you can imagine where I turn for my news.

My fe=
ar now? All the mouth-breathers, and the people who think that the
mouth-b=
reathers are the only ones worth programming for, will bend the
internet t=
o themselves. How? Remember when Comcast and Disney wanted to
merge? There=
was talk that if that happened, the delivery system,
Comcast, could favor=
certain content, Disney, and thus destroy the
net's great equality. (Inde=
pendent or competing content wouldn't
download as fast as Disney/Comcast c=
ontent)

Is this fear realistic? I don't know.

But all of this could go in=
a direction that creates models that would
allow me to make a living doin=
g what I do with Human Dog right now.
Maybe they already exist.

Would I co=
nsider myself an ordinary member of this age group? No.
