See this? This is a photo of the Spongebob Squarepants sponge given to me for Christmas. It stands as a symbol of the wonders of modern life in several important ways.

First of all, it is a sponge and it is in the shape of Spongebob Squarepants. This in itself is testament to a level of Genius and Beauty in the world.

Almost as significant is the fact that I took the photo of it with my mobile phone, sent it to my computer via Bluetooth, and uploaded to it the Flickr image-hosting service, from where I generated this blog entry and had it automatically sent here to Blogger. In the space of a couple of days, I've created this site, invited people to join it (some of whom I've never even met), and hooked it up to Flickr, a hitcounter and an RSS feed, all from my desk and all for a few mouse-clicks apiece.

Anyone who wants to tell me the future wasn't supposed to be like this can fuck right off.

He's taking over teh world! I also have a Sponge Buddy.

In reference to your post, this is exactly the way the future should be, only tonight did I make an online booking for a driving test, after discovering that; it is exactly the same site the call centre uses.

I love the internet. No more middleman for me!
