I find a lot of it to be very funny. :-)

Imagine blogs read by bots to people who think bots are 
funnier than other people.   Now the content of the 
web begins to merge without boundaries into an animated 
web.  The future isn't the Semantic Web; the future is 
the Game Web.  We are players in a medium that is to 
what is to come as DOS command line adventures are 
to DOOM and Quake.

It isn't hard to predict the future.  Humans are terribly 
consistent about what they want from it and technology 
that doesn't meet those wants doesn't thrive anymore 
than organisms without an energy niche.

That one of us has no sense of humour? Nah, I prefer blaming the 
medium. Email sucks for funnies.
