Wandering the Web is like reading the graffiti in a public restroom and finding that the For a Good Time numbers direct you to other restrooms; only faster, less smelly, and with better artwork.

The web has changed a lot since I first uttered that opinion in 1994. Now, you needn't be content with mere graffiti: you can also use the vending machines, read the ads above the urinals, and browse the newspaper that someone left on the floor.

And, occasionally, stop to see something other than a restroom.
