Happy Superfluous Self-Congratulation Day, everybody!

From the BBC:

People around the world are coming together on Friday to celebrate the world wide web.

Susan Crawford, the founder of OneWebDay, said she wanted people to reflect on how the web had changed their lives.

The day will be marked with events taking place around the world, together with online activities.

The organisers are planning to create what they hope will be the largest global online photo collaboration. Web users are being asked to tag their pictures with OneWebDay and upload them to photo-sharing sites Webshots and Flickr, to create global photo albums.

The organisers are also encouraging people to post entries to their blogs on Friday which reflect on how the web has changed their lives.

Ok, then.

The web has given me many exciting things, including some wonderful imaginary friends, repetitive strain injury in the right index finger, the evolution/creationism debate in limerick form, and a quarter share of $1.47.

But above all, the one great thing that the web has given me, and I think I speak for everyone here, is the ability to look in the mirror and confidently state, “Everyone is mad except me.”

And some nasty imaginary enemies too.

If you live on an island where the most reflective remark you're likely to hear is, 'I made all my jibes today,' it preserves sanity.

(Jibes, in this sense, being not snarky remarks but turns on a windsurfer)
