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
