    I wonder how much of this (instant connectivity to millions of people, theoretically greater exchange of ideas, global social memes) will translate to long-term economic growth that exceeds the historical norms…..

    Or despite the internet, blogs, etc., are we humans still victims of our own susceptibility to cognitive dissonance, animalistic fears and prejudices….merely selecting information from the internet that reinforces our personal conceptions of the world.

    Judging by the comments posted on your typical website (this included), the jury is still out.

    I guess we’ll have the answer in twenty years.

    Barry, Your blog’s RSS Feeds are messed up. Please fix them.

    What’s messed up — how do I fix them?

    More efficient communications usually allow greater fools to imitate each other more efficiently.

    See Cramer, Jim.

    Impressive numbers for an impressive website.

    By the way, what is a “Trackback”?

    I have set my Firefox Browser to subscribe to you blog via the following link:

    Firefox calls it Live Bookmarks. For some reason, it’s not working since last few days. May be it’s a Typepad issue. I don’t know how to fix it.

    Johntron – The internet has also brought flash mobs, divisive political group-think blog cesspools, penny-stock pump/dump SPAM, and ADD-inducing flashy advertisements; despite information being more accessible, there will still be crowds of significant size and surprising stupidity.

    Jeebsaves – I use the same feed URL with Google Reader. I’ve had a few minor problems in the past but I’ve had none recently. You may wish to use Google Reader ( ) instead of Firefox since you can access the reader from any computer, any browser, anywhere.

    Barry, keep up the great work!

    Say what? Are those numbers ex- food and energy?

    Google Reader always works fine for me.

    BTW, I’ve got a (rant-filled, self-indulgent) blog now — mostly music with some politics, business, etc.

    And I’m SURE that you’ve allowed for the # of unique hits to take into account people who clear out thier cookies so as to not report a staggering number of New page hits……..LOL

    Just like com score, alexa, et al……LOL
    You should take those #’s over to Sand Hill Road… worth a stack of pancakes at Buck’s right?……..LOL

    You can also use as a feed reader. It’s my fav toy of the moment.

    The CSI (Core Subscriber Index) is at the high end but a slowing economy over time should reduce that number.
