Blogging fees, online death and the net itself

Couple things to talk about.  First up, what happens to you online after you die (in real life).  Well, it takes a little bit of preplanning.  But Lifehacker has you covered.

Philly takes the wrong side in social media, trying to tax bloggers, including taxing some more than they made from blogging.  Also, people get paid to blog?! I jest, I jest.  I do it for the sport of it all!

And Sullivan picks up this story:

The Internet is the real revolution, as important as electricity; what we do with it is still evolving. As it moved from your desktop to your pocket, the nature of the Net changed.

Those first clause is powerful, and true.  The Internet is still changing, and more importantly, changing us.

And in response to the second block quote that Sullivan pulled out: ThinkGeek has shirts that detect WiFi, are instruments and can do all kinds of things, so we’re pretty much in the future right now!
