0920071.jpgIn general, people think the Internet is here to stay. They seem to like it. Yes, there are people who say the Internet is  ood. John, Sir Elton, is not one of them. This Sir-bloke hates the Internet— he can’t wait to go back to the good old days when the Big Network was only for the boffins and geeks in universities. So here’s his reason: there has been a surfeit of technology, and this has made people too lazy. The Internet is creating a lot of mediocre stuff, which is good most of the time, but that it is hampering the creation of masterpieces. Never a man to rant about a problem without suggesting a solution, the admittedly talented musician says the only solution is to shut down the Internet for five years and see what sort of stuff is created then. Food for thought, is our only comment. (Who knows?)
