Rushkoff steps up to say I told you so. "And just like the gambler who trades in his coloured plastic disks for real cash, AOL's Steve Case understood that his run was over and that it was time to trade in his stock certificates for those of a company that had genuine assets."

You're going to love the NEW Time Warner, you'll all see. You'll be sorry, Douglas Rushkoff. You'll see that nothing's impossible. Nothing.
I have to post one of these a day to keep getting paid. My apologies.
the thing is, Rushkoff is already wrong, when he writes: "once the technological barriers to entry for the internet had been lowered, no one would need AOL's simplistic interface or it's child-safe, digital content wading pools. People would want to get on the "real" internet, using real browsers and email programs."
what a crock of elitist crap. more better: "It's so easy, no wonder it's number one!"
