    What a great video, but I couldn’t help but snicker at:

    1) the ‘limitless’ 9 million Google hits (as we DMI’ers are all too aware, anything after 1000 is not really there)

    2) the implication at the end that it is ‘all on us’. Which is probably true, since the couple of thousand people who fund and make the software that ‘all of us’ use are probably watching the video right now.

    – If it wasn’t clear already, I’m still working on my Web-cynicism post :)
