  1. Yo, Film Nerds. You’ll Want to Watch This Video on Depicting Texting and the Internet On-Screen

    CINEMATOGRAPHYYYYYYYY

    I'll include "TV nerds," too, because the conclusion Tony Zhou comes to is that, at least as far as the aesthetics of on-screen texting is concerned, Sherlock pretty much nails it. Filmmakers have not, however, cracked how to depict the Internet on-screen. It's all incredibly interesting, at least if you're me.

    Repeat after me: "The Internet is friends—NOT food."

    Undersea fiber optic lines keep the Internet humming along at a steady pace, but that humming has apparently been attracting sharks. Now, Google has to go back and reinforce some if its more than 100,000 miles of fiber optic cables so that sharks don't eat the Internet.

    It's people! Soylent Green The Internet is made out of people!

    It's really easy to get annoyed at commenters or other Internet users while online, especially when they say really terrible things about the stuff you like.
