A good internet connection does make all the difference. I'm discovering new things about the net that I couldn't possibly have done before. Reason? Simple, a bad connection which simply doesn't allow you to stretch your exploratory interests. New phenomena that couldn't have existed before highs-peed internet connections came to be. Like torrent sites and youtube.

Speaking of you-tube, what interests me most about it is the straight-web, short-span webisodes. not something I could really explore before. Of course everyone in the know is aware that its a relatively new phenomena on the internet. 'Relatively' being the keyword.

Why am I blabbing about this right now? One word, Afterworld. I'm a little late arriving in this fandom. Late enough that it's showing on television, which is how I discovered that the episodes are available online. Clever mix of narrative storytelling and 3D imagery I gotta say. The episode's are short, so they wont take too long to load. Makes me wonder if it has anything to do with the current generations short attention span.
