Ray Bradbury: Still Piss & Vinegar (at first he was just vinegar)

Ray Bradbury is violently opposed to the internet, and crusading for libraries.

First, let me state that I fucking love the guy's work. The Martian Chronicles and The Illustrated Man are two of my favorite works ever. and I certainly have no beef with him trying to save funding for libraries, for the obvious reasons both personal and professional.

But I don't get the internet hate. Sure it's a distraction, but it's an invaluable tool and capable of doing so much. At least once a day I read an anti-internet screed (written by people taking classes online, at that) and I can just roll my eyes and go back to looking at the latest celebrity gossip... or something.
