Was Douglas Adams vor gut 10 Jahren über die Internetkritiker
geschrieben hat, gilt heute … ähm … immer noch für die
Internetkritiker, aber auch für die Kritiker der Internetkritiker (und
wahrscheinlich auch für die Slow-Media-Kritiker):

“I suppose earlier generations had to sit through all this huffing and
puffing with the invention of television, the phone, cinema, radio,
the car, the bicycle, printing, the wheel and so on, but you would
think we would learn the way these things work, which is this:

1) everything that’s already in the world when you’re born is just normal;

2) anything that gets invented between then and before you turn thirty
is incredibly exciting and creative and with any luck you can make a
career out of it;

3) anything that gets invented after you’re thirty is against the
natural order of things and the beginning of the end of civilisation
as we know it until it’s been around for about ten years when it
gradually turns out to be alright really.

Apply this list to movies, rock music, word processors and mobile
phones to work out how old you are.”
