No really.

I mean, what is this all about ? Cute kittens ? Funny videos ? Stalking ? Is that all ?

Now, don’t give that crap about work, global village, bridging world, and all that. Silly excuses.

An American University did a study on its students and found that most folks do nothing other than facebooking, porn, downloading music and movies (torrents or something) and sharing funny videos on the net. Less than 5% use it for studies or other shit like that, and that too not on regular basis, but mostly on the days of exams.

Though, its an American sample, I assume its pretty much similar a case in India too. But apart from all that shit, Indians have another typical taste. Technology and geek-ery.

Last time, when Google+, the social networking site was launched, a report came that the second country next to America that had amassed the most number of initial users on Google+, was India. Some odd 2.8 million users! Wait…2.8 million out of an entire population on 1.2 billion? Now, that is something serious! (in a nice way, that is.)

Apart from that, there isn’t much good news. On a global average, the Internet is so stale, with the regular crap, funny videos and unrealistic things. People are basically just wiling away time on the internet rather than doing the important things that they are supposed to. Remember, the internet was built for things like that. Library, military intel…you know…serious stuff.

Nobody does things like that today, at least the vast majority doesn’t.

Wait, if you want to disagree, tell me…

– Can the internet fix the ozone layer depletion problem? At least, make people aware of it ? Any viral videos yet on that ?

– Can the internet bring together good people and make this a better place? Does the social networking sites tell you what your friend needs and prompt you to help him/her ?

– Can the internet topple corrupt governments? Oh Tunisia, Egypt, so scratch that shit.

– Can the internet reveal corrupt officials who demand you a bribe? Sting operation, anyone?

– Can the internet make everyone equally rich ? At least, wipe off poverty or such kinda inequalities and stuff ?

Fat chance. Internet…you’re so fucking boring.
