Reading that Yancey Strickler thing that people have been linking, and realising that I simply no longer care what "the internet" was, is, could be or might once have been, and that my main wish --- extremely unlikely to be fulfilled, admittedly -- is that we stop reifying this increasingly monstrous and all-consuming noun.

I do wonder if this prolix mania for redefinition isn't perhaps a sign of an exhaustion and ennui much broader than merely my own, but that might be too much to hope for.
