Fuck you! Web2.0

My man, the legend, the Monkey Dawg, the HMS, Kerry Quinn had this posted on his Facebook page.

A great rant against Web 2.0 written in the style of the "fuck you" scene in the 25th Hour (starring Ed Norton). Whoever wrote this should have really recorded a video for this.

Well, fuck you, too. Fuck me, fuck you, fuck this whole Web2.0 sphere and everyone in it. Fuck the gazillion of blogs out there, ripping each other off and fighting for credit, while they write 10 bullshit posts a day, jamming up my feed reader with stuff that nobody wants to read and making pennies from Adsense advertisements. Fuck the “How to Blog” blogs and fuck all the “Top 10” posts. Fuck live blogging events, writing EVERYTHING that goes on stage and then have the guts to call it reporting. Fuck the Vlogs with the celebrity wannabes and their 15 minutes of fame needs. You are not fooling anyone!
Fuck the social media power users with their thousands and thousands of friends and fuck the self proclaimed social experts who charge you hundred of dollars for creating a linkbait article and posting it to digg, StumbleUpon, reddit or Mixx. Fuck all the bookmarking services and the social media news sites, with their attention deficit disorder users who can’t stay on one page for more than 30 seconds, and then claiming to be multitaskers living in a never ending developing era of the information superhighway age. Oh yeah, fuck the commenters on digg.

Fuck the websites that call themselves social, just because users can post comments on their site, and fuck all the major brands that think they understand viral advertising, after they watched the 50 most viewed videos on YouTube. Just create good products, you morons! Fuck YouTube, vimeo, veoh, DailyMotion and MetaCafe. Fuck you all with your homemade bloopers, the how-to guides, the mashups to famous pieces, the funny pranks you did to your friends. Fuck all the lip-syncs to songs I never wanted to hear in the first place. It has no real meaning, it has no real value! Fuck Mentos and Diet Coke, fuck ninjas and pirates, fuck Numa Numa and OK GO, fuck Chuck Norris and Lolcats. I don’t wanna fucking have cheezburger! Fuck Internet memes. You are the real virus of our civilization.


This goes on for several more paragraphs. You can read it in its entirety here: Fuck you, Web2.0
