There is a problem with the internet. It has forgotten its roots. It has forgotten HTML. It has forgotten LaTeX. It has forgotten WordPerfect. It has forgotten television. It has forgotten radio. It has forgotten film. It has forgotten phonographs. It has forgotten photographs. It has forgotten the Gutenberg Press. It has forgotten the Alphabet. It has forgotten Arabic Numerals. It has forgotten Hieroglyphics. It has forgotten music. It has forgotten speech.
The internet is fascinated with digital waveforms. They don’t realize that digital waveforms are phenomenally primitive. As a consequence the internet is phenomenally complicated. We have a whole generation trying to use metaphors of analog media equipment represented on digital media equipment. It is complete crap and it does not occur to anyone. Word processors are crap. Spreadsheets are crap. Presentations are crap. Vector Graphics are crap. Audios are crap. Videos are crap. Their formats and editors are crap. Complex useless crap that many people are making a good living making more complicated to guarantee their meal tickets and they don’t even know it. They use words like “organic”, “innovative”, “2.0″, “web”, “village”, “technology”, “entertainment”, “design”, “thinking”, “visual”, “global”, “climate”, “change”, “open”, “source”, “search”, “apple”, “i”, “my”, “face”, “google”, “twit”, “social”, “network”, “pirate”. They hire lots of “numerati”, “literati”, “vidirati”, “audirati”, “timerati”, “grapherati”. The words are meaningless and the people don’t know their assholes from first base. They measure their credibility by their credit rating.
You ask them a “Simple” question and you get the “Complex” answer. They don’t hear the question and don’t speak the answer.
They are shotgun happy pretending to be rifle sad.
Simplicity eats when it is hungry, sleeps when it is tired, doesn’t work or play. Simplicity never leaves and never arrives. Simplicity neither asks nor tells the time. Simplicity is the crooked path that is the shortest distance. Simplicity is periodic and chaotic. Simplicity folows but has no leaders; leads but has no followers.
