In The Future...

When I lived in SF back in the heydaze of the dot-com frenzy - and the term "new media" had a slightly more amorphous meaning than "a bunch of self-important knuckle-heads sitting at computers acting like their opinions are journalism" - a few of my friends and I became convinced that the real use of the "new media" would be that of providing outlets for all possible perversions. On our train rides into the valley we would sometimes amuse ourselves imagining what some of those perversions might be: "www.squirrelsuitedmommas.com", "www.nudemalemonicas.com" etc. In large part we were proved right, but never in our most fevered envisioning could we have predicted how right we were.
