And it’s tricky clearing those laser beams

Proposal for discussion, found at Hatless in Hattiesburg: “When did the internet ‘jump the shark’?”

I’m thinking “when Jon Hein sold to TV Guide,” which would have been in the summer of 2006.

He Who Lacks Headgear has an idea of his own, of course, complete with nifty graphic. He does not agree with me, but I don’t expect anyone to agree with me.

    The internet jumped the shark on that day in 1995 when I first logged onto Compuserve.

    The blogosphere jumped the shark the day I opened my first Blogger account.

    Facebook and Twitter… (you get the idea).

    Smartphones have also jumped the shark, they just don’t know it yet. And I’m waiting for the right time to do it to tablet PCs next.
