A colleague recently reacted to a story about some quirky Internet story by saying, mockingly, "Oh, no! Something weird-slash-unbelievable was on the Internet?"
And we all laughed and went back to creating weird-slash-unbelievable things for the Internet.
So I get the notion that being shocked by something on the Web is ... sort of dumb.
Having said that, I share this story. As things uusually happen on the Web, you run into something, and it leads you to something else, and before you know it, it's Thursday.
Here is a bit from the "Conan O'Brien Show,'' in which he shows local news anchors introducing the same canned story. Funny.
There's no real answer provided to the question: "Is it time for dogs to have a social network of their own?"
So we'll answer that with a simple "no."
Again, having said that, there is a site called matchpuppy.com that matches dogs looking for playdates. It's for owners more than it is for dogs.
And that leads us to the question: At a time when we've figured out how to make cars that can drive themselves, if it's not time for dogs to have a social network of their own, well, that time can't be far off, can it?
