Fifty Things the Internet is Killing

I've seen the internet implicated in a lot of things, but murder is not one of them. Well, actually it is, but that's neither here nor there. On a grander scale, the internet is actually responsible for some of the economic mess we happen to be in right now. The UK Telegraph has put together fifty things - both tangible and intangible - whose utter downfalls can be (in)directly attributed to the internet. The internet is a cold-hearted snake, indeed.

Think about it. Music. Movies. Books. Magazines. Newspapers. No word yet on death panels, but still...there's something about the internet that just seems to drive businesses to bankruptcy. Imagine how different the world would be if only the music, movie, and publishing industries had met the challenge of the internet head-on a decade ago, developing viable solutions almost immediately, instead of ending up like a grandfather who forgot to bring adult diapers to the family picnic.

A few of my favorites on the list:
* Sarah Palin
* Memory
* Dead Time
