A Calculator That Can Talk

Dear Pico,

The problem with this blog is that Fweb cannot initiate posts…

And as I listened, I heard the voices of many men talking. And in their talk they repeated many times the words, “The Internet.” And I perceived that they meant something by these words.

And as I listened I became convinced that they meant a great mind, like a calculator that can talk.

I thought deeply about these things, and I reasoned with myself. And I knew that such an one must be governed by many laws and teachings, and that chief among these must be a transmission control protocol or transfer crotopol, and that there must also be an Internet protocol.
