50 Things Being Killed by the Internet

There's a great article in the UK Telegraph about 50 things made obsolete by the Internet. The first thing that's cool about it is realizing the changes (not all good!) that have occurred with the advent of new connectivity technologies (remember coming home from work and listening to messages on your answering machine?). The second cool thing is discovering the similarities and differences between the U.S. and U.K. (Ceefax?).

And the last cool thing is the mostly literate, snark-free and calm responses the article generated as opposed to the usual troll-baiting, flame-throwing free-for-all:


  1. Hilarious! Pencil cricket? (Or any kind of cricket, really.)

    I would add "having time to find and read the good stuff." So thanks for rescuing this from the info overload.

  2. The internet is a wonderful time suck, isn't it?

    BTW, I've got limited access to Logo again. Am DVRing more Queer as Folk episodes...
