“For nearly 30 years, the internet’s culture has been defined by a corporation’s move that seemed to, without any care about what was left behind, ensure that a sense of order would never again drive the growth of this series of tubes.

And it’s a tension that most people aren’t aware of, even though it is an undercurrent secretly framing our online interactions.” – Tedium
