Wired, for publishing this pile of absolute crap.

How big a font do I need to put this in?? How about... AS BIG AS YOUR BROWSER CAN RENDER?

"WEB 2.0" WILL NOT SAVE DEMOCRACY

...you morans.

Furthermore, I feel as if I have lost IQ points just by having to point this out. :P


Don't get me wrong - I'm all for greater transparency and oversight of the election process. Anyone who's read this LJ knows that I think our current mess with electronic voting machines is verging on unbelievable. But the root of the problem is not voting machines. The root of the problem is that you, the American electorate, ARE STUPID. By all means, go ahead and record our mistakes. By all means, document our collective downfall. After all, unlike demanding sanity from our government, putting up videos of our collective stupidity on YouTube is at least amusing. But don't kid yourself about this being some "revolution." The revolution... will not be televised.

Throw away that damn Wired magazine, notorious wanna-be fodder that it is, and read Diesel Sweeties instead.

Ben,
Don't think of Wired as Time of the 21st century. Think of it as Omni; e.g. Science Fiction.

I remember back when wired was cool. The kool-aide of the web boom. When its graphics and layout were so overcolored that you had to read it with welding goggles.
