"Zoooom back to 1995, when the Internet was a blushing babe, young and supple, and full of promise. Every guy wanted her, but they didn't appreciate her for her finer qualities. The marriage ended in disaster. Well the babe is more mature now, and she wants to have some fun."

--dave winer

i always appreciate dave's state-of-the-internet thoughts. he's really right, it sucked in the dotcom era, and now we're moving to a more (corporate-)free and fun net. driven by those that love it, not those that love the cash alone.

as an example, i think i'm correct in saying that most of the people here are like me. not making that much cash doing free software. since money isn't a big issue, we survive the funding drought and push the internet to its next level. lots of 'new' coming out finally. p2p being an obvious example.

have a great night, folks
