I was listening to The No Agenda Show and Adam Curry and John C Dvorak like talking about what's the Internet and what's just online. The Internet is the network. AOL wasn't the Internet and neither is Facebook. This BBS is owned by me. I installed it by myself. I own the domain name. And it lives on the Internet but it's an online community, online. It isn't the Internet. But I used the freedom of the Internet to create this community. What is the Internet to you? What isn't Internet? What're the lines? Is what China has the Internet? How is the actual Internet maybe different than it was in the 60s, 70s, 80s, my 90s, and through to today? I'd love to hear more.
