World of Ends is a neat editorial on how some business and government don’t know what to make of the internet and never quite get it right. The best quote is from the very end: Perhaps companies that think they can force us to listen to their messages, their banners, their interruptive graphic crawls over the pages we’re trying to read, will realize that our ability to flit from site to site is built into the Web’s architecture. They might as well just put up banners that say “Hi! We don’t understand the Internet. Oh, and, by the way, we hate you.” – so I now think there are lots of websites that hate me. My super-duper popupkiller program has killed hundreds of popup ads. I’ve even considered un-installing flash so those silly layered flash advertisements stop working.
