What was the on line storage capacity of most computers in 1991 when the Internet first took off?

 

I think I still had only 20 megabytes at the time.  I was not storing movies on my computer.  I had lots of VHS tapes.  Now I have 700 gigabytes.

 

But I spend time wading through lots of crappy information on the Internet.  The problem is QUALITY OF INFORMATION.

 

If I had lots of high quality information stored on my computer I would use the Internet a lot less.  Is that what advertisers and ISPs want?

That's the biggest problem with the internet, and the problem has gotten worse over time.  

 

There is too much crap, advertisement, deliberate misinformation and there is far less credible sources and information that can either be easily accessed, or accessed for free or without wading through enormous amounts of irrelevant or biased sensationalism to get to in the first place.  

 

You now have to wad through, not only annoying commercials/ads, but also through 'everybody and their mama', and all the people sitting in the house with the aluminum foil hats on, that are on the internet or are putting themselves out as credible sources  

 

Between the constant and/or intrusive advertisements and lack of credible sources and information, the internet is fast becoming broadcast/analog TV that you have to pay for.

That is the terrific irony!

I am one of the people who is regarded as wearing a tin foil hat.

 

Aircraft weighing less than 200 tons destroying buildings weighing more than 400,000 tons in less than two hours is totally ridiculous in my rarely humble opinion.  And the engineering school I attended now charges $20,000 per semester.  But I have not seen anything from the school supporting or denying or explaining, anything about the events of 9/11.

 

Are our educational institutions any better than the Internet?

I don't think you are regarded as one of the people wearing the tin foil hats at all, because at least you know what you are talking about and speak of things based in fact or science, rather than an over active imagination or refusal to take your meds.

 

As far as our education systems are concerned, I think it's really the same as it was before integration, the wealthy communities have schools and motivated teachers that are just fine, while the poor communities have schools that are lacking, often in many areas, including unmotivated teachers, and in many cases, lacking severely enough to ruin a child's academic life beginning in their formative years.  

 

When you look at the grand scheme of things in public education, it actually does look a lot like "the internet" since it's often a roll of the die credible un-maniuplated, un-"scrubbed" information on the internet, and anything on the internet really has commercialization and corporate America's print all over it. The same could be said of America's public schools, since the quality of education you child receives depends more on where you happen to live than, or live at the time, and just like the internet, America's public schools have corporate America's print all over them as they are being turned into de facto ponzi schemes for politicians and corporations.
