Does the internet allow for us to have more simple/fun/cheesy entertainment. Think of it as "fast food" entertainment.
I reflected on this lately for several reasons – simple but fun online games, LOLcats, available content online I'd never otherwise read or watch, etc. I can spent a lot of time doing enjoyably shallow things, indulging my love of hilariously bad translations, or just surfing.
I've wondered if that's made easier by the internet – and yes, this is relevant to geeky careers since many of us are interested in technology or content.
