For the amateur psychoanalysts out there, I suppose you might have noticed that two of the first three Friday videos I’ve posted feature dark post-apocalyptic futures. This probably gives some insight into the “sky is falling” pessimism that seems to run deep in publishers. There’s a great old joke that after the Bible, the second book to come off the Gutenberg printing press was about the decline of the publishing industry.
So with that in mind, enjoy this bit of dark humor, the residents of 2068 looking back at The Internet, one of the greatest disasters to befall mankind.
