OneWebDay September 22nd

I'm not quite as optimistic as some of these people.

The very things they (and) I love about the web are the very things that government and big business hate about it, so I'll reserve my judgment for a while longer.

I'm from a generation of party (shared) telephone lines, a single black and white TV channel (on for just a few hours a day), telegrams, snail-mail and trunk calls to Australia costing half a week's wages so, for me, the Web is truly remarkable. But I still think there's nothing like receiving a hand-written letter and the sound of someone's voice trumps an email any day. On the other hand getting a video from across the world showing your grandchild's first steps is pretty special too. The great thing is, it's not an either/or, we can do the lot!
