As the Internet Continues to Grow, So Does Greg Rutter’s List of Must-See Web Sites
The Internet serves billions of users daily. From Google to ESPN to The New York Times to Twitter, our manmade online world has changed how we find, understand, interpret, and communicate information. Internet terminology has even become part of our everyday conversations (“I Googled you” sound familiar?!).
Since its development and commercialization in the 1990s, the Internet has become a platform for families to share birthday pictures, aspiring musicians to share original music, and a group of friends to recreate a music video – yes, I’m guilty. The Internet is a place of ambiguity and growing depth with more than 100 million Web sites currently online. With that said, I have a monotonous daily online routine: I read e-mails, check Facebook and Twitter, read the top headlines, check celebrity gossip news, and sometimes play around with shared links. I needed something new and exciting.
Luckily, I stumbled upon (literally, StumbleUpon-ed) a Web site titled, “Greg Rutter’s Definitive List of the 99 Things You Should Have Already Experienced on the Internet Unless You’re a Loser or Old or Something.” The list, in no particular order, is comprised of many YouTube videos, including Susan Boyle (#41) and David After the Dentist (#30), Fail Blog (#19), and Funny or Die skit, The Landlord (#53). From funny to serious, Rutter’s list will expose you to some of the Internet’s most discussed and viewed material.
As Rutter’s title proposes, you should have already experienced all of these videos and Web sites. However, do not feel like a “loser, old, or something” if you haven’t. I suggest you bookmark the site and enjoy the comprehensive list over an extended period of time. Also, don’t forget to share the links you enjoy with your friends via…what else but the ever-changing, dynamic Internet!
