The Daily Puppy: A boring Internet?
Bad-boy, billionaire, businessman, Mark Cuban recently blogged that "The Internet is Dead and Boring." As much as I'd like to respond with an intellectually thoughtful post, I think I'll let the Internet speak for itself. I don't know how it happened or where I was when I clicked through, but I stumbled upon The Daily Puppy. Much like favorites cuteoverload.com and stuffonmycat.com, this is a website that very simply solicits puppy photos and posts them.
Readers can sign up to have puppies delivered to their inboxes, drop a widget on their personal website, or subscribe via RSS, and are encouraged to rate the pooches with 1-11 biscuits. Commenting is active and reveals a goofy, fun-loving community of adoring fans. As reader Yourmomsage channels Star Trek's Scotty she writes, "This pup is so cute, my head can't hold all the cuteness, 'She's gonna blow, Captain, I kinna hold her innymore....' Kaboom!"
Before visiting, be warned that the content is so cute that it could break your harddrive or crack your LCD. Cuban, we're lucky that this single website hasn't broken the entire Internet. Honestly, how can you claim that the Internet is dead and boring when it's full of so much snuggly goodness?
