Does The Internet Need Better PR?
from the not-such-a-bad-place,-after-all dept
If you didn’t use the internet, but just read news stories about it all the time, you might think it’s a pretty bad place. There’s all these scams and identity theft and porn and spam to deal with. Why would anyone bother. That’s why one guy thinks that the internet needs better PR. For example, he points out that most television characters never seem to use the internet for anything other than hacking into government computers. So, he’s suggesting (tongue-in-cheek, I hope) a TV show that portrays the internet in a positive light. Any time characters have problems, the show’s Baboon (don’t ask) points them to a website that can help them. While, he’s joking about the show (I think… or, rather, I hope…) it does make something of a point. While all the bad stuff makes news, all the good stuff doesn’t make news because it’s just there, and it works (mostly). That’s just not particularly newsworthy.
