The Internet will never take off because my 14.4 modem ties up my phone line
I’m an avid reader of James Fee’s popular GIS blog, and I’m sometimes tempted to weigh in with a comment, but then I wonder if instead it is best left to people wanting to vent. There have been some good discussions lately, so I decided to comment.
This is all reminiscent of everyone kvetching about ArcIMS 3.0 in the summer of 2001, before ArcIMS went on to be such a phenomenal success (overwhelming its flaws). Technology improves over time, yet so many people are ready to pass judgment before a given technology comes into its own. Or maybe we all just need a place to vent with our buddies, then get back to it.
