The Post Internet Generation

Look, I'm almost critical mass on my informal survey. I've asked my college educated youth cohorts a couple of random questions, in the last few weeks:

Heard of flickr? No.
Funny or Die? Nadda.
Twitter? No thanks.
Web 2.0? Saw Spiderman III


Myspace account? Yup. Got one.
John Stewart? Godlike.

I think there's a trend here. A generation that doesn't read may lack the curiosity to explore. Let's call this a Fairness Doctrine. I haven't figured out where all this fits into my dimestore philostainment, but I gotta say this:

What happens if you lay pipe, and no one notices?
